So what is Premium SMS?
Premium SMS is a range of services where SMS texts are sent from
a phone to a shortcode number (e.g. 80010, 88080) usually with
a keyword that triggers a response from the Premium SMS system.
So you might text the keyword "VOTE" plus A, B or C
to 80010 to register a text vote for one of 3 choices. Or you
might text "QUIZ" plus your answer to a question to
88080 to go into a draw for a prize.
Voting and Quizzes are just two of many types
of "Premium SMS Campaign" that can be run. For a fuller

What's the point of Premium SMS?
There are two main uses.
Firstly it can be used to generate permission-based mobile phone
mailing lists. So by giving you the opportunity to enter a quiz
with a holiday as a prize I capture your mobile number and can
use it for future marketing activities. Basically I can send you
adverts or news items.
Secondly it can be used to make money. It is possible to make
a charge to the phone, with the user's permission, for the campaign
entered. So you could charge up to £5 to enter a quiz for
a top prize and provided enough people enter you keep the surplus.
Or you could use it to sell images, movie clips, ganes, etc.
