I am in urgent need of a script that sends text messages. Let me explain: over the years the credit on my account of my mobile phone ISP has been steadily rising, for the simple reason I just don't call that much. It's gone now into serious figures and I asked my ISP for a refund. They refuse point blank. Right. But that makes me even more determined they will not get it. The solution is to text messages to charities. But the ISP is not to know I'm not doing the texting myself, it's a script doing it. Unfortunately the device has Win-Mobile installed and I have no idea how that works... (nor do I want that, mind you!) So I want to ask your help. The script (batch-file?) preferably has a config file in plain text, specifying:
1) the number of times a message should be texted,
2) the number to text,
3) the content of the message
4) the interval the messages are send
The script should stop after the specified number of messaged has been reached and optionally deal with any replies, by moving them to a separate folder. Ideally it should be able to send multiple messages simultaneously, but that's might be too much for a simple script.
The reason it's urgent is that on Jan, 1st. a new law comes into force, effectively raising the price of electronic gadgets like mobile phones, MP3 players, harddrives, etc etc, by as much as 5 euro's to "compensate copyrightholders of the entertainment industry for illegally downloaded material from the internet"
So, I'm buying a new phone this month instead...
Can you help? The charities would be grateful!
