Sending SMS - is there a way?

by Anonymous Monk
on Jun 26, 2020 at 16:20 UTC ( #11118569=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to send SMS for free using a perl module? Does it involve signing up with an SMS gateway provider and buying sms credits?

Please enlighten :)

Thank yo all!

    If you're wanting to send to a particular number (e.g. your own) many carriers at one point would have an email to SMS gateway so that if you email something like it'll forward the body of the message (or maybe the subject and first n chars of the body, or . . .) to that phone number as a text. Then you'd just need an email module (say Email::Sender) and the correct addresses (which could be more tricky if you're dealing with (say) people on multiple carriers who may have different gateway addresses).

    Why don't you ask CPAN?
