Hi there Experts,

I am looking to build a WAP site that is accessible only after users "paid" by sending a Premium SMS. I am totally new to this area (SMS payment) but experienced in mobile web dev with other billing solutions (i-mode, Vodafone live etc).

The problem I run into, is that I have a hard time getting a clear picture of how charging/validating users would work. I know there are several SMS gateway companies here in Europe, but cannot see through the garble of marketing talk on their sites. What I would like to ask this community of experts is the following:

1) Can you give me hints/tips on the best Premium SMS billing solution provider in Europe? Important are:
- Good ratio in revenue payouts
- High coverage in Europe and poss. United States
- Solid support
- Tech infrastructure that allows for 2-way SMSing (we receive a MSISDN, we can reply with Premium SMSes via Gateway)

2) Does any of you know/have any experience with an SMS-based charging infrastructure? If so, I'd like to know what that looks like. We are looking to make a Subscribable site, not just a one-time download. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, and can be rewarded in a seperate thread with extra points (the cream to the pie, sort of speak!)

Thanks, and regards,
Victor
