Prefer to go with Australian provider even if more expensive.
Worry about sending all our business to offshore multinationals.

Subject: [Offtopic] Sending SMS Messages from a PC

Dear All,

I have just downloaded and installed a copy of Messenger-Pro which is an application that allows sending of SMS messages from a
networked PC.

The cost is currently 5.8 cents per SMS to my Optus handset

The system allows easy insertion of people into an address book.

Names are inserted into groups and SMS messages can be sent to all members of a group or selected individuals with ease. 

This is the type of system that would allow a school or teacher to quickly send an SMS message to all students in a class etc.

See:  http://mpro.clickatell.com/index.php   for more details.
