SMS Voting allows you to run and manage unlimited number of Voting services at the same time.

For example: "Your vote for %AnsName% has scored %AnsVotes% votes." will return the information about the current score of the answer. Voting service has comprehensive support for setting the limits for the number of accepted answers per contact (e.g. each contact must send at least three different answers).

1s2u Virtual Mobile is designed to receive SMS on virtually any mobile network around the world using a standard 11
digit mobile number.
It has an advantage over short codes, in that like a normal mobile number, it can receive SMS messages from most networks in the world.

The MO leg is always set to standard rate, and Premium SMS cannot be sent from a Virtual Mobile number.
Therefore this is a purely inbound, non-billed solution.
