Google Voice SMS

Post by morth123 » Tue May 25, 2010 9:04 am

Hi Aaron,

Not sure whether this feature is already available with Sipsorcery. I have searched the entire forum but couldn't find any references.

Is there a way to send SMS using my google voice account via ruby dial plan?

Thanks
Moorthy

Haven't seen one.. but you could do a GET to start a Tropo script, that would let you send SMS or IM or the like.

Sorry Moorthy, I forgot to reply. The answer is no there is no wrapper method to send an SMS from a sipsorcery dialplan. However you can use the sys.WebGet method to execute arbitrary HTTP requests and companies like clickatell.com offer SMS sending via HTTP.

Regards,
Aaron

Tropo lets you natively send SMS's, upto 10/minute for free as a developer.

I'm looking for just a bit more detail on that:
tropo.com offers free sms send/recieve (as long as it's just for development purposes), and supplies a destination/inception phone number.
If I wanted to bind that to a specific, existing number (i.e. from IPKall or SIPGate), would the redirect() function allow this?

In theory you should be able to redirect a call from one of your VoIP providers to tropo and have it receive an SMS, in practice I'm not so sure. The main issue is likely to be whether your VoIP provider number is set up to receive SMS from the PSTN, in the countries I've worked in that's not a given, I'm not sure about the US.

Dragging up an old thread but...is this still true, that there is no method to send an SMS using my GV number?

I would like to initiate a URL from my home automation PC to sipsorcery to generate a SMS. Is this possible and if so could someone help me make this happen?

Thanks

Will

Hi Aaron

Could you give me an example/sample of a URL that I could call from my web browser to send a GoogleVoiceSMS? I setup a dial plan per your instructions.

I was successful trying a web callback but I can't figure out the correct URL to send an SMS

Thanks for your help

Will
