Alternative for Google SMS Channels

The popular Google labs feature Googele SMS channels - India is paused due to increased bulk SMS costs.
Is there any alternative way or service available to send updates to the mobile numbers for free of cost?

Create a twitter account. For example : livetolearnweb

Set your website feed to post tweets automatically in twitter using feed-burner.

Then ask your visitors to follow the twitter account via sms to get updates.

E.g. To get livetolearn.in updates via SMS send sms 'FOLLOW LIVETOLEARNWEB' to 53000.

Hello,
Some friends of mine (using idea or vodafone) did not get any response when they SMSed 'follow channelname' to 53000....

In Indis, does only Airtel work with twitter?

Thanks

However, you can file request to add new service provider. See the below link for more information
