Send SMS Messages with VoIP.ms 2016-11-3 UPDATE

No permission to download
Here's a quick-and-dirty command line script to send SMS messages using a VoIP.ms DID that is SMS-capable and SMS-enabled.

Prerequisites:

1. VoIP.ms account with at least one DID that is SMS-capable (cellphone icon appears beside the DID number).



2. SMS-capable DID has been enabled for SMS use. Also configure SMS messaging with a destination email and/or forwarding SMS number to receive replies from the SMS messages you generate. Click on Manage DIDs in the VoIP.ms portal and then Edit DID:



3. VoIP.ms API has been enabled with a secure password AND the IP address of the server from which you will be sending SMS messages.


Installation:

1. Download and unzip the tarball from the command line ONLY on your server (the link above is out of date):
Code:
wget http://incrediblepbx.com/voipms-SMS.tar.gz
tar zxvf voipms-SMS.tar.gz
2. Edit class.voipms.php and insert your VoIP.ms account name (email address format) and your API password (generated above).

Edit voipms.sms.php and insert the 10-digit SMSsender DID for outbound messages. This must be an SMS-enabled DID on your voip.ms account! It is the number to which replies will be delivered.

Operation:

From the command line, issue the following command including a 10-digit recipient number and an SMS message in quotes.
Code:
./voipms-sms.php 6781234567 "This is a test message."
Cost:

SMS messaging is currently free. VoIP.ms has indicated that there will be a penny a message fee beginning probably in July, 2014. Still free as of Dec. 28, 2014.
