    I went for an interview at a company that specalises in sending SMS / uses of SMS technology and WAP etc, they might be worth a call as they're about the only global company in this area - or were at the time.

    Re: anybody work in the SMS / Mobile market?

    Thanks folks, I didn't think I'd get a single reply let alone 6 in such a short time. The detail on this is that I am looking for contacts within the network operators as we have developed a patent protected personalised message service that we wish to offer to mobile networks worldwide. I have looked at the netsize site it looks interesting, I already know people inside WIN and have been in touch but it is very early at the moment, should the service go live in this country you can say you heard it here first.

    Hi Eric,

    After looking at your request I would advise you to contact the network operators corporate customers rather than the network operators directly. The revenue from your application will go mainly to ESME rather than the network provider so they will be the ones interested. The large customers would include mBlox (crazy frog people - one of the largest: http://www.mblox.com/mblox/home/home.asp), Ericsson, End2end, WIN and AQ Limited.

    I will forward your email onto our marketing people but its very unlikely that they will get in touch as they are more interested in the revenue generated form the corporate customer ordering shortcodes rather than them offering services that would jepordise their relationship with their customer.

    Regards
    The Girlfriend

    Thanks GF
    However looking at the way the corporate customers work, in that you text them (on a short number) for some service or product, I dont think they are the people I need to speak to. The service we have patented is designed for one end user to send a personalised SMS directly to a target phone. We are currently rolling this out in Brazil and Israel and it is the networks that derive the revenue potential, it is possible for the corporate customers to sell additional content for this service however most of the content is provided directly to network operators for resale.
    I PM'd the details over if you have any questions let me know
