Do you use textwall? Free alternatives?
We make minimal use of Textwall in college (which is news to me!) and SMT want to increase the use. However, they don't want to pay the annual fee. Does anybody know of a free alternative?

My Vodafone broadband USB dongle had a standard mobile phone number and could receive text messages - could you just set up a computer somewhere to sit and receive text messages?

Does it need to be a text gateway? Perhaps work up a email or twitter based solution?

They really do want a text gateway although I can't really see it being used extensively. I've suggested to SMT that we see how effective the current use of textwall is and if it is being used, fork out the £400 for a years work of 25 licences. In the big scheme of things £400 is a pittance, and already it has probably cost the IT dept more than that in looking for a free solution.
