    Not possible AFAIK. Someone has to pay the mobile network provider's costs, so I don't think that there's a program that'll allow you to send as many texts as you like for free.

    Try buying your colleagues Windows Mobile-powered smartphones instead and use MSN.

    TMobile provides an "email" address to all the phones...you could send a single message to may addresses at once; the receiver is then billed for the sms. I suggest you check with your provider.

    Also, please do not bump threads.

    smurf,

    what do you mean by this?

    "Try buying your colleagues Windows Mobile-powered smartphones instead and use MSN."

    does msn provide such a service?

    anyway,what i want is the sms that send from the hotmail to mobile? i did it before,but it just allowed 60char only but it's ok.

    i need to send the same messages to all my colleagues but it just allow me to send not more than 5 or 6 sms.
    i know there is a way ... can you tell me,please?

    What I meant by it was that if your colleagues had for example a Motorola MPx200 phone, which runs a cut-down version of Windows, you could just send instant messages to all of them via MSN Messenger.

    As for straight SMSes, as I said, someone has to pay the provider's costs (given that they all run an extortionate cartel), so no.
