    but I don't need it for any client. I just need it to put up on a fun site that's offering a lot of free services like e-greetings, jokes, horoscopes etc. just to let visitors send sms without using up the credits that's left in their mobile cards.

    Still, you are going to waste time on using any "free" services. Free SMS is like free web hosting - there is really no such thing - somone always foots the bill.

    SMS Everywhere Messaging API

    http://api.smseverywhere.com/

    The website says:
    Using the API developers can create their own messaging applications using the language of their choice following the guidelines below.

    Hint: if you want to learn how to use xml services this is a good place to tinker around.

    Just for the record, unless you have a quite large volume, RedCoal is cheaper. They also offer a web service interface, like Smseverywhere does.

    the http://api.smseverywhere.com/ sounds good till the site don't get too much traffic. Ok, so now I've told my client that he's gotta pay for this thing unless he's happy with the 30/month limit.

    So what's the cheap one out there?? RedCoal?? or any other??

    It depends really on how many bulk messgaes U buy, the larger the volume, the cheap the cost to send a message.

    That I know, the bigger the bulk, the cheaper its gonna be but all service providers are not charging the same amount, now are they??

    So if we take on a few of them on the comparison chart, who's gonna be cheap yet the service acceptably good??

    Surely thats your jobs to check the prices of each service provider!?!?

    Simply go to the neccessary websites and compare. We dont need to do that for you do we?

    Not really IMO; I put forwards RedCoal from experience and I assume like wise for M Johansson ?

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with RedCoal and as I see it this would be your best option but if anyone else has a recommendation I'd be interested as well

    Just to see how someone else can top RedCoal I suppose

    Yeah there was a recommendation for www.clickatell.com by M Johansson but most of the people who have posted on this topic have recommended RedCoal.

    I think that I should give it a try. Does it give a free demo of its service so as to give an idea to new clients.
