MESSAGES TO FIXED LINES/ANSWERING SERVICES
Upside provides services for sending text messages to
and from mobile (cell phones). Some countries (notably USA
and Canada), allow sending of text messages to non-mobile
phones (fixed lines or answering services). Delivery to such
services is treated as premium messages - however, based on
the mobile phone we cannot tell the difference between a
mobile phone and fixed line. This means that we will send
your messages and if it turns out that the number to which
you sent the message is premium priced your account will be
charged 10 credits per message. It is your responsibility to
filter messages before sending them should you not want to
send messages to Fixed lines/answering services.
