Need an SMS Gateway

I’ve been searching all over the place for a good gateway provider for a new web app we’re building. I can’t find a single site that makes it clear an easy to get started with.

Have any of you had experience integrating an SMS gateway into your Apps?

We only need a shared short code. The best sounding compahy I’ve found was clickatell, except I’ve sent 5 emails and left two message and no one will call me back from there!

One company did respond, but they want $1000 a month, plus fees for each message sent. We only need this as a status notification option for our users, similar to UPS notifications.

Do you need to receive SMS? 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 not, you can just use internet SMS gateways like clickatell to do the work, 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 host your own GSM device, you can use software like http://www.visualtron.com or http://www.kannel.org (GPL Open Source). Alternatively, you may obtain a shortcode from your Telco - but these come with monthly subscription of maybe one or two hundreds. :slight_smile:
