Integration to texting to a cell phone

Has anyone managed to integrate to a product which sends texts to a mobile phone immediately. I am looking for low volume texting, maybe one per day, to be sent to a particular mobile phone on occurrence of a particular event.

Any guidance on existing experience greatly appreciated.

Hi Philipp

I have used an email to SMS gateway service in the past which worked well. If you google 'Email to SMS Gateway' you will find a selection.

The service I used can be found here although that was a while ago so you may find a better (more competitive) offering with a bit of searching

Kind Regards

Like Scott I have also used SMS Gateways but it is very difficult to find a free one but my clients pays for a gateway to enable this functionality and I simply create a column with the necessary format like and ensure the send from address is the registered account holder to the gateway and create the email alerts to correspond

All cellular providers in the USA have there own gateway. simply send email notification to the mms/text email address for the carrier.. this site has a list of them

If you do not find the cellular service on the list, you can test it by sending an text from the phone to an email address. If the text is received at the email then the cellular has a gateway.

Hi Folks

Just to let you all know that I eventually addressed this by creating an integration to ClickAtell. It was fast and easy.
