Clickatell bulk SMS gateway

My colleague Roberto is experimenting with Clickatell to send SMS messages from applications, with very good results. This looks like another “It Just Works” service.

The gateway is very well done – this is a perfect example that you don’t need SOAP to make web services work, these guys allow you to use HTTP, mail, FTP (among other ways) to access their engine.

The fact that SMS sent via their services are much cheaper than using a local provider opens some interesting business perspectives…

    Is your colleague still happy with Clickatell? Or didn’t he test it further? Was it reliable (as in: did all the messages arrive at their destination)?

    We are considering using Clickatell as gateway. And I’m looking around for people with active experience in using their service.

    We worked with CLickatell for 2 months and we stopped.
    The problems met with clickatell are:

    – the support is very slow, even when they make errors
    – lots of problems with the sms 1 credit
    – In Switzerland we have 3 operators. We can change operator keeping the same mobile phone number. In this case sms never arrives.

    We changed for aspsms.com we have nothing to say, very good service.

  4. Roberto, you will find that even though Clickatell’s support may be slower than other companies which I’ve used for SMS sending in the past, their API enables one to send bulk with a very low SMS failure rate. Very seldom do you get routing errors with messages unlike other gateways I’ve used in the past.

    It might be an idea to bring up the fact that you guys have a ‘number for life’ scenario to the Clickatell guys and I’m sure that they will be able to resolve your issue.

    Hi,

    I have been using http://www.smswarehouse.com to send SMS – they offer a choice of http api, web based sms or a free desktop application.

    What I like the most is the fact that I only registered once and could log in with the same username or password. Real easy to use
