Simplewire, a U.S.-based SMS aggregator, enables Guinness Beer to launch its first SMS cross-carrier short code advertising campaign.

By responding from their cell phones and wireless PDAs, users may be entered to win free Guinness Beer or other prizes. Simplewire collaborated with Vanso and Soapbox Mobile, a leading mobile marketing agency and application service provider, to help organize the campaign and build the custom application.
