Our policy has been to charge the person receiving the text message to pay for the service. We're removing that, so no-one is being charged 25p any more. Instead, you can now respond to text messages for free. What we do is give you 25 messages you can respond to each month (this is for a limited time). After that, if you need more messages, you can buy them.
The number has changed: 82958 is on the way out, and instead we use 07786-20-111-44. Which works globally, meaning we're no longer limited to the UK.

If you need text-in words on a short code (5 digit phone number), or you want your customers to pay for the cost of the messages, then get in touch. We can offer those services for a fee.
