  • SMS messaging

    Iwas wondering if someone could explain how sms messeging works. Do you have to use a server such as teleflip or clickatell? If someone could please explain this to me I would appreciate it.

    I think google would be a really good place to start with this question, and what this has to do with PHP is beyond me.

      I imagine it had to do with PHP because the user thought he could code something to send sms messages using the php code.

          This thread is old, but I wanted to put this info on here, since I couldn't find any helpful threads on here when I was researching this issue awhile back.

          I found an SMS company that I am currently using to send text messages in our online PHP application. The company is Tatango. Their service is free for ad-supported texts (a small ad at the bottom of each text), or you can pay something like $5+ a month for no ads. They provide a very simple SMS Gateway you can use to send out text messages through PHP, RoR, etc. They also have an API where you can administrate their group system from your website. You can read more about it in their Developers section.

            Well, and old topic but I was reviewing posts I had made and this one I have made progress on actually.

            I have coded a script that corresponds with a POP3 e-mail server, and sms messaging. I can send updated scores via SMS by sending an e-mail to the specific address. The script then reads the e-mail when executed, parses it and sends it out via sms to your phone.

            At present time I have support only for local phone number (SaskTel), but I have the addresses for various other service providers which in turn would expand the network.
