so i've searched many times before how to make automated phone calls for free, but found no real solution. i've accepted the fact that some things will not be free, so i started looking into paid services. found a free/paid service that's looking good called DialMyCalls. It gives me one free call to 25 people a day (with ads along with that voice message, before and after), and $.06 per 30 second message. this will do for now. found this post that gives a code for 50 free credits when i sign up: D381735.

this service also offers text to group. i'm going to be using DialMyCalls weekly for my youth group, to notify parents of absences, and to make announcements. simplify things a lot!

in my search for free sms to group, i found this service that's kind of interesting, think email group for text messages.
