I'd like to have people send text messages to a specific number and somehow forward these messages to an email address or directly to the server, anything that an application can read and decode easily. This is for a voting system like in all the tv shows that are the rave right now, but in a smaller scale. It would be for a non-profit org in Canada, so cost is also a big factor.
Is this possible? Can it be done with a regular cellphone number or do i need to setup something special with the cell provider? So far all i've found is Google Voice but it's only available in the States, and some other stuff in the UK. Do Canadian cell providers charge extra for sending text to non-local numbers? (sorry, i'm a newbie when it comes to texting.)
Thanks for any insight on this.
I had talked to iLoop about doing something in this field. They are one of the quality providers. Do a search on SMS marketing or SMS polling and you've find others.
