Can someone please explain a little about those commercials that say something like text love to 12345 and get tips.

I know they are subscription services that charge the user way too much money, but I have some ideas that might work.

Where do I start to set something like this up?

Is this in the wrong forum?
I think this technology is huge and nobody knows?

It would probably hinge on the country and carriers you're talking about. For example, I'm in Japan and most carriers have hobbled SMS intentionally. Nobody here 'texts' anyone, we use e-mail. A little more information from you might help.

Here is an example of what I want to do.

I want to send out a daily "tip".
So I advertise on my site.
To get your daily "tip", just text tip to 12345. You will get a daily text with your tip.

I know these services cost the user something like 9.99 a month or whatever. I would like to know where to start. I think the 12345 is called a short code. I pay a company to set everything up and if all goes well, I have 10,000 people paying me $9.99 a month for my daily "tip".
