Taykt for Radio

There are a number of radio stations using Taykt as an easy way to interact with listeners. The idea is you register your station name with Taykt (for free) and then ask your listeners to text the station name followed by their message to 82958.

To turn on mail forwarding, login, edit your word and select mail forwarding from the options on the left:

To pay for the service the listener is charged 25p when they text in. But that's just the basic plan: you can try the agency plan, and the texts don't incur the 25p charge. Try it out, see how it works for you, and let us know.
