    Ok let me try to explane this one... Ive never done this before but i tried it you can join a radio stations VIP club they call it, you get info on prizes and contest and i tried with a news station. ok i joined but i never get any of the texts from them, the radio or the news is there a setting where you can add your phone number or something to your text messages so when you text them it showes up maybe i have it hidden? i looked i cant find anything that would be stopping this. maybe i should call the radio or news station .or get a life lol i only do it when im bored at work siting at my desk, like now haha ok any ideas ??

    Don't Know if this will help but a few months back I tried texting into a TV station. Example= txt fever to #51073. When I tried to send it SMS I kept getting an error message, but when I sent it MMS it went through.

    one of those options is gonna be the golden ticket....

    in all seriousness, is the number of the station you are trying to text in a standard number format or something else? oh and you are aware that by texting radio or tv stations, its usually a $0.99-$2.99 charge per message and sometimes automatically enrolls you into garbage for like $9.99 a month. i would suggest you not even do it.

    i forget the number its not like 555-555-5555 its more like 55555.
    if i see a car accident or traffic and tell them about it or text a comment about a conversation they are having they get it right away. for example we had a heat wave they ask what temp is it, so i text in 108 and they read it. but they are suppose to give you hints about contest and stuff going on. They say standard text rates apply but i have unlimited on my plan so i think im good. i guess maybe ill just callem,
