    SMS hosting: can it be profitable?

    Hello,


    It could sound a bit weird, but have you ever tried/heard about sms hosting? I did reseach and found nothing.. probably because its tottaly unprofitable.
    Our country is on the wave of this bussiness model. Interesting, have you ever expirienced with this.
    User sends msg to bla bla number for ie. 2$ and gets 25MB of disk space.
    I'm interested in US SMS rates: what part operator can take, does anyone tried this kind of bussiness? How was it going?

    As i imagine, noone provide sms hosting... probably because of the diferent industry: you have modern banking system, Visa and Mastercard >100 years.

    Waiting for oppinions

    I've never heard of SMS HOSTING, just simple SMS programs out there....i don't know why you would need hosting with it

    Personally I think anything can be profittable if done correctly.

    I've seen people profit by selling sandwiches with mold on them on ebay.

    Does that mean it's something you should invest into?
    Well thats obviously something you'll have to investigate further.
