Sure, we live in networked times, but the phone still plays a big role. In about a dozen digits, you can reach anyone in the world with a phone. Now there's also a way to get at much of the metadata that goes along with it, such as where a phone number is likely based. That and more is being made available for free via the Cloudvox Digits API (our Cloudvox API profile).
Telephony-as-a-service company Twilio (a ProgrammableWeb sponsor) is set to announce new volume pricing for heavy users of its Twilio SMS API. The company had previously dropped the price for SMS twice, but did not yet have published volume pricing. Those using over 500,000 SMS messages a month will now pay a fraction of a penny per SMS.
