beta.3jam.com

Y’all remember 3Jam, fantastic group SMS service I mentioned a while back? Well they have launched a beta website that puts the final piece together in their preparations to launch as a full service.

The website is simple and clean. Once you have signed up and activated your account, you can add your contacts simply by entering a full name and mobile number. You can also organize contacts into groups.

The group functionality is particularly slick. I wish I had used it during the World Cup to jeer my friends who were going for Brazil, and cheer my friends that were going for France…

Anyhow, once everything is all set up sending a group sms is sencillo. For example, I am fixin to send y’all a sweet 7 a.m. text message and it is as easy as typing: chat Texas wake up suckers!

I wonder how long before 3jam ends up on Tech Crunch ?

Radio Handi has been doing this for a while now. Same idea, but you can also switch to a voice call. Just send the command .voice to your SMS chat and it invites everyone to dial into a conference bridge (local call in 30+ countries).
