I'm developing an SMS application where location awareness is not a must but a strong plus. Basically, a user SMSes the system and then given location-neutral or location-based services.
I searched the forum. I know that normally bulk SMS providers such as Clickatell do not provide any location information, as a special agreement with the provider is required.
However, I found this:
I guess that given a cell ID I can obtain the user's coordinates somehow. But still, cell ID is not provided either by Clickatell.
I also found this:
but I never heard of them before.
1. Are there any SMS centers such as Clickatell that provide a cell ID or any other hint I can use here?
2. Did anyone use the services of Knowledge Where, or any other location aware SMS processors?
