May be you are German, so you can contact me at .

To say it with some words:
You have to (mis-)use a provider.
This provider is paying to transfer your SMS from the internet to the cellular (telephone) net. This has to be payed for anyway!

1) you only can SMS as many free messages as "your" provider allowes to,
2) you have to write code that correspond to this provider's web site. Your code runs with no other provider's services,
3) you should expect, that "your" provider becomes rid of you, so he will refuse his service to you after some "experiments" anyway...

If you have a NOKIA and a SUITABLE CABLE for connecting it to your computer you can try this control to sent SMS messages true your phone.  But i don't think it works for multiple numbers at the same time. You have to check it out.

WHEN COMPLETLY LOST you could make a sorta que or timer or looping that keeps sending them out.

The Oxygen SMS ActiveX Control works under Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT and
2000 operating systems family and supports Nokia 3***, 51**, 61**, 62**, 71**,
8*** series GSM phones.

This control is shareware. To register visit

I know it's not mutch but it gives hope !

yoolb, this sounds like spamming to me! This sort of question could possibly be in breach of the member agreement. I would strongly suggest that experts refrain from posting solutions here until either a moderator has reviewed this thread or an acceptable reason for this requirement is forthcoming.

I am asking you this question to do a legal mailing list over SMS in stead of letters.
The clients of the disco had to sign a paper and give their cell phone numbers if they wanted to receive a SMS message.
This is completely legal and the clients expect to receive a message of what is going to happen in the disco.

Thank you yoolb, I accept that this is a valid use and given that you have signed agreement then it cannot be considered unsolicited.

My suggestion for this kind of volume is that you look at the tellustalk site this will allow you to send an email to an address of the format where CC is the country code, AAA is the area code and NNNNN is the phone number. This is probably not quite the solution you finally need but there pricing structure seems quite low so you could probably set something up with them which will give you a final solution.
