Hi,
I have been trialling Jeyo mobile companion and also the Jeyo mobile extender, and very impressed with both. I am tending to favour the mobile extender as it is incorporated within Outlook and very easy to use. I like to try several programmes to see which suits but I cant find any other software that does the same thing (send sms on computer via harrier).

Is anyone here using software other than Jeyo that does this?

Cheers

I vote for Jeyo Mobile Companion too and I've used it for some time now.

Have you had a look at this SMS software for Pocket PC search results? Haven't looked at the software titles listed, but seems like some are not exactly what you want, but you might find something to try in the list.

Yet another cheapskate who believes everything should be free! :-)

While it's not free and you have to have a bloody stupid 24 month contract the new You Choose $19.95 voice plan with added $9.95 1000 SMS to 021/029 must make a very attractive option to those sending out bulk SMS's - especially with that all the SMS marketing companies are charging.. You could buy a few phones and use the 100 sms plan as well to send out to 027, decide by number which gateway to use and you're away..

And since the user would be on a contract it would be very easy for Vodafone to track the device down and go to courts over abusive use of the network for spam purposes. It would take only one complain to cut the whole operation.

But what about companies who have legitimate uses for 1 way or even 2 way SMS? I know a company that uses it for sending messages out to staff and probably sends out around a thousand per month. Spending $300 or so on an external GSM modem and interface it with some software (nowsms is great and even has web interface) and they would be breaking even after the first month or so. What are Vodafone going to do to those corporate users using SMS who are paying big $$ to have the same functionality?

The important thing is

I think it's pretty clear that "bulk SMS" and "SMS marketing companies" together in the same sentence can lead to spam.

Of course there's legitimate use of bulk SMS for enterprise, or even for SMS marketing companies.

But then anyone can setup a shop, attach a PC to a phone and start sending SMS out to mobile phone users - even those who never subscribed or signed up for any promotion.
