How to send an SMS message from a PC with nothing more than a TCP/IP connection via ethernet?


#2

See: developershome.com/sms/

I tend to use the following commands - look them up in the AT Commands manual:

AT+CMGF=1
AT+CSMS=0
AT+CNMI=2,1,3,1,1
AT+CSMP=49,169,0,0

You will also need to know your network’s SMS Service Centre (“Message Centre”) number, and set it using AT+CSCA

You can save these settings with AT+CSAS

You may also want to set AT+CMEE=1

Do any of the links at the end of this thread help you:

Doesn’t developershome.com/sms/ cover that?

In particular, developershome.com/sms/howTo … romPC2.asp

Here’s a couple more gateway providers for you:

dialogue.co.uk/services.php

tiltd.com/html/txtranet.html - you can get a FREE account with 10 credits on it to test! :slight_smile:

and did you read about Kannel, mentioned here:

developershome.com/sms/sms_t … smsGateway

kannel.org/

You can try this free sms software, that does a HTTP to SMS. You need to get a Wavecom modem to use it. :smiley:


#8

You can also use Skype - see: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1142&p=8445&hilit=skype#p8445

It may or may not work out cheaper than using a GSM mobile or module…

Note that it may not be necessary to set this explicitly - see: https://forum.sierrawireless.com/t/sca-for-reply-to-received-sms/2326/3
