    Cell phone message?

    Hey, anyone here know how people send messages from a server to a cell phone? I know its possible, because I've seen several people with scripts that do it, doesnt have to be in php, but I think thats what they do it in.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Do a Google search for SMS and it should come up.

    I dont mean I want to do it, I want to know how to do it. Ex, if I wanted to make a site like the ones that send the messages.

    You need to look at SMS gateways. I'm not aware of any free ones of the top of my head, but I believe there may be some out there.

    We have servers checking each other periodically and email an admin's phone when something goes wrong.

    Hi,

    you can send sms via php and mysql database.You could try out looking for SMS Gateways. SMS Gateways lets you send out SMS using there software. There are some as simple as calling a script at the service provider's site with the parameters like mobile no. and content to be sent and they send the SMS for you (www.smsjunction.com). These are paid services.(air2web.com)

    You may also be able to send out SMS all by yourself for free, but this is depended on the mobile phone service provider.

    To send out a SMS to a mobile phone, for free, do the following:-

    send an email to
    <mobilephone number>@mobile_phone_service_provider_site.com

    e.g. [email protected]
    The mail will get sent as SMS to the mobile phone number, only if the mobile phone service provider supports this feature.

    I hope this helps you.

    Regards,

    Bright
