1) If I set up my own sms (text messaging) server such as openfire, will I still have to pay someone in order to send text messages out to the public?
2) Does the recipient pay when they receive the message unless they have an unlimited text plan with their carrier?
3) Is the phone number the only thing that is needed to send a text to it? Does it automatically translate the carrier based on the number?
Hopefully an easy 500 points. Thanks.
