Sending Text Messages from Filemaker 11 to client phones

Post

I have been exploring several methods of sending a text message from FM 11.

I think I am almost there. I am signed on a trial version of Text Magic that rents me a phone number for $4/month plus 20 cents/message. They sent me this Open URL example:

Here is an example of an open URL:
https://www.textmagic.com/app/api?username=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD&cmd=send&phone=99912345&text=TEXT&unicode=0 

I use the FM script Open URL and use the previous URL. I inserted my user name, password and my phone number preceded by a 1, and the script works. However, when I try to merge the phone number Field from my data table,  the browser replies with "wrong phone number format".

Any suggestions on how I merge the phone number field into this Open URL script?
