Simply sending bulk sms using a mobile phone

Hello everyone,
I am new to this, I have never used sms software before. Before I install and test the software, I would like to know if I can use it to simply send bulk sms to a few thousand of people at a time, using a mobile phone that I plug via usb.

I do not own a modem, and I am not planning on buying one, I have a small language school and have to target prospect students via sms that’s all.

Thanks in advance for your help,


it depend on your mobile phone and your ability to configure the gateway to be used with your mobile phone.

playSMS is a web user interface for several SMS gateway software, for example for Gammu, smstools3 and Kannel.


in addition to what anton said you can use theoretically everything that is able to send sms and is connectable to a PC.
but remind that using SIM-card-driven sms sending you will be limited in sending speed to about 5-10 sms per minute.
