Hi there

We are exploring the SMS Premium Voting similar like American Idol etc etc. How does SMS Premium Voting works technically? We are interested in how the data collected as far as I understand the third party company will collect the data from each Telco company. Then it consolidate into a single data. Is this the right approach?

Or is it possible to get data from the destination number (the thing is we don't know how does it work).

We are actualy programmer and trying to get this data Voting collected centrally or possibly raw data of the SMS.

I am appreciated your comment or feedback.

Thank you

    You have third party applications dedicated for this purpose. Radio stations implement the same thing.
