Project Description

This is a website for the purpose of signing up cell-phone/ Internet Users

for its service, which is for Users to subscribe to receive SMS text

messages from their choice from of a list of "Source-People". We need to

keep the "Source-Person/ Cell" anonymous and their Source-Cell number

inaccessible for Users and hackers, while creating the community of

end-Users, each with their own accounts, profiles, and list of

subscriptions.

The base functionality of the main process should work something like this:

1. Ability for "Source-Person" to text the website from their cell

phone; Then

2. Have the text posted on the website, under that Source-Persons

section, on a message board type of page; AND ALSO

3. Have that text sent to a group of Users' cell-phones, who have

subscribed (the Users must know who it is from, but NOT the Source-Cell

number); AND THEN

4. When anyone in the group-of-Users reply, to have any/ all of their

text-messages to post under the original post, for that text, from that

Source-Person, on the website AND NOT to the original phone number.

* User sign-up at website; we request their name, email address, and

cell-phone number, at least;

* They have a basic account to organize their membership, which will

expand into a profile, later;

* Users select from a list of "Source-People", from who the User

will receive texts from;

* There will be Information about each "Source-Person", and they

will have a section;

* Are all posts and replies viewable/ readable to everyone, anyone,

or just those who sign-up for that person?

I was thinking the possible use of exchange sever and notification services,

using ASP .NET Membership and SQL Server. In order to connect with each

cell companies SMS network, we need to use a short-code or gateway. This

can be done through using a commercial service, such as [url removed, login to view] or

[url removed, login to view], in contrast to developing the API of each individual

cell-company ourselves, since that would cost much more.

Again, I was thinking about the use of exchange sever and notification

services; ASP .NET Membership and SQL Server. Whatever you conclude, I need

to know the technical outline for the direction of this project and I need

to understand all the components for it completion, including any

reoccurring costs. I am confident this is a reasonable project and you will

be able to complete it by the first of the month.
