    I want to allow users to enter their cell # on my site so they can receive text message updates about a new contest posting, just like our email updates. Anyone know of a good reliable site that does this? fucking aweber should include this feature.

    not sure, but you can look into this: http://www.ribbit.com/

    Although it's generally geared more towards Flash phone calls, I think the service supports text as well.

    what he's saying is that you could probably use some mass email type software instead of looking for an SMS type program + paying the gateway fees. the only problem is that you have to know what carrier the user has service with

    yea I could use like AIM or something for this, but manually setting this up with hundreds of numbers/services is a pain.
