Frequently asked questions
How much does SMS sending cost?
The Ozeki Message Server is a software product that you
can install on your computer. It is not a bulk SMS service. It uses a GSM phone
connected to the PC (or an IP SMS service) to send and receive messages. The
cost of an SMS message depends on your mobile subscription.
Does Server 6 operate as an MMS Centre? If doesn't, when
will this functionality be available?
Currently it does not
have MMS support. We are adding the MMS functionality to the software soon.
If you have a service provider that has an IP MMS interface, we can develop a driver for it
free of charge.
Can Server 6 provide 'Reverse Billing'
The software does not have billing support, though you
can set up user credits to limit the maximum number of messages,
which a certain user can send.
We will require support to
connect us to the Mobile Network Operators using IP
We can give
you support using a remote console such as Logmein.com for setup. On-site
technical support is also possible, provided travel expenses are covered. You can read more about our

How can I display an organization (or company) name
as the sender of the SMS message?
If you use GSM modem connectivity, you cannot display
an organization name instead of the telephone
number as the sender of an SMS message. This is due to the
characteristics of the GSM network. However, if you use IP SMS connection,
you can specify the sender for each message individually
and override the telephone number with alphanumeric text consisting
of up to 11 characters.
