Exactly. Lots of SMS options, very few that can handle millions of SMS for a low cost.

Plus, who are you giving your number to? What's in it for them? Will they spam or phish you? Will they sell your number and data?

I would assume that he wants to insert his own ads. Which is why another alternative should definitely be perused first. Why dilute the post to ad ratio more than it is now?

Actually, it's pretty weird.
Often just the last word comes in a separate text.
And the messages aren't long.

The masses don't care about SMS.

Right. And those people write their full names when asked to enter their name...

I'm actually trying to see if there is an available update on the app but the Google play store is down for me. Anyone else?
