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 2125551234@smsgw.cellprovider.com 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?
