I am doing something similar on my website for the mobile app:


I want the users to be able to sms thier friends with a link, write from thier phone. The problem is that if they enter thier phone in, you dont know what carrier to send the message to (Through email like 2223334444@messaging.sprintpcs.com) so the only way I have figured out how to do it is to take the list from here: http://www.notepage.net/smtp.htm and basically send a message to each carrier with the phone number.

I have not been able to find a central place to "Look up" the carrier name to resolve who to send it to. Problem with the "Send to All" idea is you might get tagged for spam

Free Email2SMS gateways are fine for low volume use, but you can get blocked after sometime. :)

Do you need to receive SMS replies? If not, you can just use internet SMS gateways like http://www.clickatell.com, and post to them by HTTP, XML or email. The cost is about 6-8 cents per SMS. There are cheaper services, but not always reliable.

If you need to receive SMS, you will need to host your own GSM device or modem so that people can send you SMS.

If you need to host your own GSM device, you can use software like http://www.kannel.org (GPL Open Source) or http://www.visualgsm.com. Alternatively, you may obtain a shortcode from your Telco - but these come with monthly subscription of maybe one or two hundreds.

Hi Webdeveloper,

We've just kicked off a cookbook type series of posts on how to create a free SMS website.

Check it out. It should answer some of your questions and point you in the right direction.
