It was a better system before they tinkered with it
It was a great system but unfortunately recently they have made some annoying changes to the layout of the system. As it was not broken there was no need to fix it. It is a pity that you can not go back to the old layout which was better. Too much information on the message page. I do not care about seeing my usage, I go to the system to send messages. Apart from that it is a handy work tool.
Be careful who your sending SMS from. Constantly locking account, no notice!
Great service but the lack of information is annoying. We are running a Facebook Campaign, which grabs users mobile numbers. We send an SMS from "Facebook" as we do from "LinkedIn" confirming we received a customers application and our account is locked. No e-mail, no warning, and there is no list of names of what you can and cannot use.
To rectify, we have to call again for the second time. Absolutely pathetic!
We have used them for a month and so far no dramas. After initial testing we purchased 10,000 sms and its going good so far. Recommend them highly to anyone.
We've been using SMS Broadcast for two years now. They have been reliable and better value than our previous SMS provider.
Recently while attempting something tricky, I had to contact support a couple of times. Both times I got responses from "Scott" that were quick and very helpful. I wish more companies had support staff like that.
So Quick And Easy!
SMS Broadcast is so easy to use and set up and very cost effective. It makes keeping in contact with our customers so much easier. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Nothing to complain about.
Ease of use, cost effective
Meets my needs of getting timely market notifications to me.
My service provider sends me a email but my iPhone is drowning in emails and these need to standout. So SMS broadcast solves the problem.
No option to fwd original email to another email address so I can read attachment.
The new email
SMS Broadcast has changed the way I market to my 250 plus clients, some of whom do not check their emails regularly. I get an immediate response from many clients and this has translated to immediate sales, many times. Easy to use and well worth setting up your address book.
This saves so much time
Instead of fiddling around with small buttons on devices, I find this so much faster and easier to use when sending group texts. You can to a much larger group than from a normal telephone devise. I Love it!
Excellent product, easy to use
Having SMS Broadcast has been a brilliant in staying in contact with staff. Don't know how I managed without it.
Fast and Simple to Use
First time use recently, have now used system several times a great way to have a measurable sales campaign we have gotten instant results
A simple way to stay in contact with our customers. Great value, easy navigation and easy to follow instructions. An important part of our marketing. Great!
I find it really creepy how they follow you on other websites using pop up ads to keep thanking you for using SMS Broadcast... Seriously, I'm already a customer. It's weird and you could be spending that money on trying to attract new customers. It freaks me out and I'm actually MORE inclined to leave, knowing you're tracking my movements around the internet.
SMS Broadcast works well. No fuss. API is straight forward.
Being able specify a delay with the API would be good.Currently you need to use the web interface if you want delays.
Lacks the ability to send international SMS and do HLR lookups.
Quick and easy to use, we use it to notify customers of special order arrivals. Being able to check the reports to see if the message was delivered is a must - great job.
The perfect contacting tool for volunteers.
Organising large events and teams of up to 250 volunteers, SMS Broadcast has been the perfect tool to keep in contact with everyone, letting them know their roles and where they need to be at what time...all still on a personal level...love it!!

I have been a member for about 12 years. I was at another house and wanted to recommend you to a friend. Googled sms broadcast and you came up ok, but so did another service. Direct sms. The google result was "broadcast sms" direct sms. I knew the diff, but a lot may not. Is this ok? Rob
I think Direct SMS is a competitor of Broadcast SMS.
