hmm... I could add this to Mindit Assist in a second, as it already supports sending SMS as part of a normal command email to your virtual assistant. The resulting SMS traffic would be sent from your server, not your Blackberry, but the results would be the same.
command message example:
asSMS 'phone# here'
msg 'your sms message here'
First line sets the phone number (asSMS command)
second line the message (msg command)
1) send a message to you virtual assistant containing:
A) phone numbers (or the name of a group)
B) text for SMS message
2) Assistant process the request on your behalf and sends the message to all the phones
3) Assistant sends you a message saying the task has been completed
Right now 'asSMS' is a one shot (single phone number) command, but it could easily be expanded. That said, Mindit is configured to use an SMS gateway service for sending SMS traffic. If the message format needs to be something like 'Phone_number + sms_text' and your TelCo provides an email address to route it though it should work fine as is.
Let me know **exactly** what you want to do and I will see if I can do it. As for a price - Mindit Assist E1 = $100.00 US, so dollar wise we are on the same page - even if you don't need all the quote and document automation it offers.
