Al beat me to responding to this, but +1 on his comment.  IIUC, the
email-to-sms is definitely not for commercial use (as in an iPhone
app), and is more for 1 to 1 type communications.  If your client is
looking to build a business around SMS communications, they need to
make the investment to use the standard SMS platforms.
