SMS Reply-All service by SMS GupShup

Mobile Marketing Mobile Still Thrives In India, SMS GupShup Hits 35M Users, 1M New Users Monthly
I was lucky to be able to witness this technology first hand. India based SMS GupShup has partnered with three biggest mobile networks in the country: Globe Telecom, Smart Telecommunications, and Sun Cellular to introduce ‘Group Messaging’ for coordinating, collaborating, communicating with friends, workers, and family on SMS.

Referred to as “Reply All” for Globe & Smart subscribers and “Chatxt” for Sun Subscribers. This service allows users to coordinate, collaborate and communicate with up to 30 mobile numbers in a single group. This is definitely perfect for us as we don’t have to be online all the time. We are just a chat away so to speak.

These users (group members) can reply to the SMS received that in turn goes to all members in the group. This makes ‘Reply-All’ or ‘Chatxt’ the latest and trendiest way to message within small and large groups. A parallel of this service on the web would be “reply all” and “cc” function of e-mail.
‘Chatxt’ & ‘Reply-All’ are conveniently priced at flat SMS cost of 1 peso per text with many other options for those who just can’t stop SMS’ing.
– For Globe and Smart users, a 20 pesos/day unlimited option can be activated by texting “UNLIDAY” to 2993.
– For Sun Cellular users, “Chatxt” is available complimentary for limited period. This can be activated by texting “Freeday” to 2993. They can also avail of the 30 group messages only for P5 by texting “BUY30” to 2993.

It is built with everybody in mind from friends who want to meet up, to moms who want to do a playdate, student study groups finishing projects, a group of friends to catch up to housewives discussing recipes Reply All / Chatxt has been a runaway success connecting people through basic SMS.

SMS GupShup has tied up with all the major telecom operators in India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Bahrain for the product before this launch in Philippines. The Company committed to collaborating with mobile networks in developing and introducing innovative features for SMS.

Good Old Gold

A lot of people have been developing a liking to the hobby of collecting coins. Numismatics as dubbed my some people is the art of collecting coins. Some prefer collecting those which are only circulated for a limited period of time, thus has only too few numbers out in circulation. If I had a Bullion  or maybe more this will really be a nice hobby

Others collect those mint coins or those which have mint errors during production. Still, a majority of this numismatics enthusiast prefer to collect Gold Bullion which, as the name suggestion is the hobby of collecting gold coins.

This actually requires a little bit of shelling out a considerable amount from your hard-earned money, as these gold coins do not come cheap and depending on the ones you wanted to collect, they can even go at very high prices. I guess it all boils down to whether you have the sufficient budget to fund this expensive hobby, and then there is no problem with continuing to do so.

Furthermore, these facts about gold  can be a great tool to teach your little ones about bits and pieces about history. It will also be a good family heirloom which you can pass down to your child and their children afterwards

 With the advent of technology, life has never been so easy. You can continue and finish your preferred course in College all those many years ago in your own sweet time and in the comfort of your own living room (or bedroom, depending on your choice) – thanks to all these online schools and academies present in the World Wide Web now.

 You get to choose a schedule that works well with your own schedule so you are sure that it will not interfere with your day job or your parenting duties, or with other tasks or responsibilities you might have during the day that you have to finish. And since you can do it at home, you can learn at your own pace without the hassle of commuting or sitting down a bad traffic road condition.
