SMS should be FREE, or nearly free. The reason is because it is carried within necessary control channel packets.
The best option I have found for SMS only M2M solutions is to use Prepaid SIM cards from AT&T or T-Mobile. With a 90-day expiration, and the rate you wish to send (50/month = 1.67/day), it will cost $8.33/month. If AT&T or T-Mobile removed the 90-day expiration your costs could drop to ~$5.
I may be able to provide some information on a much more economical solution to you sim needs. I would need to know a great deal more about the types of devices you intend to utalize them and the device compliance standards. Please get in touch if you are still in need of services.
Seamus, Either e-mail or call me at your convenience to discuss your needs
and how we could best fulfill them
