    Starting a premium text message service

    I've seen those borderline scam ads on TV about getting 'jokes' sent to your phone and getting charged (to your phone bill) something like $0.50 a message.

    I have a legitament idea for an original service that involves SMS text messaging that I think people would pay a reasonable premium for. So my question is, does any know how to make charges to subscribers phone bills? Or possibly a service that does this that I could sign up for?

    I do web stuff as mostly a hobby / part time job, so this could very well be out of my scope. Is it?


    (Sorry if this is the wrong forum!)

    You need to look for a Premium Rate SMS Service Provider in your country. Try Google or go back and look at one of those Ads on the TV. It should say the name of the Service provider used somewhere on the Ad.


    Today is a good day to code.
