Default Stolen Vehicle Alert System

I have been toying with a Stolen Vehicle Alert System for users of this site, and other 4x4 users around the area... To keep costs down I am trying to debate using SMS (text) messages or just simply email... in this dang age, don't most cell phones get emails?

Thoughts/Ideas/Input/Comments!

Thanks!

sounds like a good idea but most stolen vehicles are in the hood where none of us really go long before any knows there vehicle is gone. I think that you would be wasting your time building such a system, plus all the time keeping it working right and posting the info, it seems like a bit of a waste.

I don't think I would want to receive texts, etc while sleeping, and if I receive a text while sleeping it is not going to help find a vehicle anyway. However, I check emails non-stop on my phone. Not sure if I'm in the minority or not.
