Paid accounts by premium rate SMS in UK (and elsewhere?)

Paid accounts by premium rate SMS in UK (and elsewhere?)

Short, concise description of the idea
Regarding paid accounts, would be nice if LJ offered payment by premium-rate text message (SMS).

Full description of the idea
For those of us without credit cards, and who don't live in the USA, it's impossible to get a paid account. If we could pay by text message, we could either clump it in with our phone bills; or for pre-pay phones, we could pay in cash at any supermarket and most corner shops!

An ordered list of benefits

  • More users with paid accounts.
  • Easy to pay - just find your phone and text, then pay on your mobile bill (or in cash for pre-pay phones).
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Inability for some users to support LJ.
  • More paid users.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I'm hardly a wiz at this sort of thing, but there are companies out there that'll do most of the work for you. Almost all countries have mobile phone capabilities by now, so it would be a fully international way of paying.
