Bill, I am no expert.I am just trying to answer you question. :)
subcribers in China , and that amount to less than 15 percent
of the total. In 2002, about 60 billion MSM were send. And Every year there are about 5o-60 million new subscribers added to this number. Although I never got "no less than 27 SMS messages in one hour" :) , as Woz said, Msm is really popular in China.
I am talking about sohu as an example.
Chinaren.com was acquired by sohu.com in 2000 . Chinaren provide kind of service which allow people to build an alumni on Chinaren.com and then former schoolmates could contact each other online, sort of a forum and then people talk and keep in touch.
In the case you were talking about, people registed to China Mobile to receive notice when someone input in their forum and also they could edit their content on their mobile and then send to a certain num and then the content could appear on the forum.
This kind of service is charged RMB 10 per month, from their mobile fee.
