I'm looking to get a virtual international phone number that can send and receive SMS text messages and can be used with my US mobile phone.
I've found Virtual Phone Line
, but they support voice calls only, not SMS.

Does anyone know of an affordable solution to display SMS messages on an installation to the general public? Ideally a turn key lcd screen solution or similar. Appreciate any help!

I need to setup donations via SMS for a client, but I don't know how I can start. What companies offer this, what are the costs.

I've noticed that all websites which allow you to send SMS' to phones in America ask you to supply the name of the mobile network that the recipient is on. If this was asked in the UK, no-one would have a clue (thankfully they don't need to know too). However, is there any way that you can work out/intelligently guess the carrier when you have only the American mobile phone number?
