Hi, We sell a hosted SMS platform. We offer both inbound and outbound messaging. It can link to most systems using API or SOAP interface. What are you looking to link SMS with?

Hi, See the attached data sheet. Its API driven so you can build it into a custom application but for what you want we can give you a mailbox on one of our Linux Boxes, Your users can then send an email to that address with the mobile number on the subject line. Set up is free and there is no rental, you only pay for texting which start at around 12p (sterling) depending on volume and pre-pay and obviously thats national rate in the UK. If this is the kind of thing you are interested in I can give you a free trial ?

The only thing that might be a show stopper is that this is hosted in the UK and although the Internet knows no boundaries mobile phone carriers do. I will clarify this, should you be interested.

Hi, The only problem is every time you guys send a text it will be to an international number because the datacentre is in the North or England. I spoke to one of the communications specialists and he said the way around this is for you to only have your clients in the UK (obviously that's Northern Ireland as well) so based on that highly technical enlightenment from someone who obviously gets paid too much I am not sure its going to work for you. It was not until I replied to the thread that I noticed your time zone.
