    Does anyone know of a free bulk sms messenger for the computer? I am looking into doing a new program at my volunteer fire company that will send a text message (all carriers ) every time a fire call is dispatched. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I will check with my county disptach center. They use the same thing for our area. All numbers go into a pool and get sent out upon disptach. Little bit of a delay but sometimes they are before the tones drop...

    So if you have an assignment that is large it may take a bit for the text to come thru. We have been on scene already and my phone starts going off....


    I will see what info I can get for you... I know that they were not able to do one of the providers, not sure which one though....


    Send me a pm so I will not forget, with your info and I will see what I can do...

    We use a program called Inforad at the hospital I work at for paging. Paging Software for Wireless Messaging to PCS phones, Alphanumeric Pagers, and PDA's We use it primarily for alpha-numeric pagers, however it also does sms and I have used it some for that for paging cell phones, I have not tried large groups, but I know it can be done.

    It would be more of a mass texting with a selection by a predefined group. Just as a group of friends that you forward a email to just by clicking friends in your contacts.
