Under UK regulations online marketers can send e-mail pitches and SMS messages only to consumers who have agreed beforehand to receive them, except where users are existing customers of a particular company.

The TPS doesn't stop Txt Messages, it comes under the same laws as Spam.

You may find The Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications helpful, especially Chapter six: unsolicited commercial communications – automated calling systems, fax, phone, e-mail and SMS.
