Hi

Is it possible to send out a batch SMS to people from Outlook? Or any other methods that I can send out a mass SMS to people?

I want to be able to use my phone as it comes with a unlimited text plan so I can update a group of people with promotions and discount offers.

Thanks

There is an add-in for Outlook that you can install and you will be able to send SMS messages from your Outlook client.

Take a look here for Blackberry modem tethering... Just remember, not all blackberry's have the modem tethering capabilities.
