    TextCaster

    Try and run a google search for Text Caster. Here is their site: www.textcaster.com

    Now, if you go there, and go to "Who is using us", there are some sites listed.

    However, if you go run a google search, more pop up. Looks like they are mainly news stations throughout the US.

    There are too many for me to list here, but like I said, if you google search text caster, you should be able to find quite a few.

    Sorry. It's like text alerts for different types of things, mainly local news stations..IE Breaking news, Weather, Traffic. Looks like a few colleges and school districts use them to for information.

    Pretty much just another reason for people to take advantage of unlimited texting packages by signing up for worthless news events that they don't even care about, such as myself. I have unlimited text with TMO so I try and use as many text messages as possible. I have one I signed up for that sends me a text every time an earthquake strikes California, even if it's like a 1.2 magnitude. Do I care about small earthquakes in California? Not necessarily, but I like news and it doesn't cost me anything extra.

    One out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you.

    not off the top of my head, however, I know that they do come from this station:

    NBC11.com

    Think they are in the Bay Area?

    If you like earthquakes you can sign up for alerts from the usgs too. I just did it last night. Let me see if I can find the URL again.

    Here it is:
