This should help me hopefully. I don't have an SMS plan and find it difficult to reply by SMS when someone expects me to occasionally :p

well considering this is a commercial service, it would have to obey the DND rules! :)

well hundreds of telemarketers in the country are already punked. this service is no different. the different is that it supports sending international sms. so there is something worth testing out.

if any service offers free sms sending, it WOULD be misused by spammers. it becomes just like email. and we all know how big the spam problem is with email services. web based group messaging service is the only solution out. and they are becoming more and more popular with time. and some feature phones are also expected to get basic support for these in the coming times.
