Title

EMAIL to SMS

Post

Phil, you recommended this approach on my other post but I didn't want to go back & find every client's carrier. Here is a service that provides this capability at a low cost without identifying the carrier. It looks like I can use the email script you generated for me and insert the phone SMS info. I would like your opinion on how this would work.

I will list the communication I received from TextMagic.

Another option is to use “Email to SMS” service: http://api.textmagic.com/email-api
If your application can send emails, it can send text messages as well.

All you need to do is:

1. Add your email address to allowed list: https://my.textmagic.com/online/emailtosms/emails
2. Start composing a message as a regular email in your application
3. Enter recipient’s number in format of “countrycodemobilenumber@textmagic.com

If you plan to use the service in the USA, you must buy a local dedicated number from us.

The US country code is “1”.
If you send a message via email, the number must be in this format -18455076048@textmagic.com.

You can register account with a business email address here: https://my.textmagic.com/register/
