I've mentioned this before to the admins, but text alerts really need to be changed as due to the limitations they can't carry the information that is needed.
I posted a job earlier, ashford to preston and clearly put in the comments that this is a backload over the next 7 days but members are receiving the text and ringing me up because they don't know that bit.
My suggestion, send a text alert that instead of saying:
mtvan job: Small Van, Ashford 01/05/2013, 13:00 to Preston (295 miles). Contact Preston Courier... On...
Send an alert that says
mtvan: Small Van, Ashford to Preston, http://www.mtvan.com/courier-work/ashford-to-preston-15581
You could use a different more mobile friendly page, use a shorter URL to give more initial details something like this:
mtvan job: Small Van, Ashford 01/05/2013, 13:00 to Preston (295 miles) http://m.mtvan.com/15581
Member gets text, if interested clicks link, gets all details, enters quote.
