SMS Gateway Explained

How to use an SMS Gateway

What is an SMS Gateway? How would one use it? Is it different to sending text messages in Bulk? There is a full article about SMS Gateways on Wikipedia but read on if you need proper detail!

The critical difference when using an SMS Gateway is that you send each message uniquely, not as a batch. This gives you control or merge capabilities. A classic example would be sending bank balances by text message. Each one would have to be unique and this is where SMS Gateways come in.
