I'm not sure were in the world you are but here in the UK all the phone companies now block SMS messages from websites because of the amount of spam generated.
There are companies that will relay messages to UK phones but they charge per message and are not cheap.
I just wanted to send me a text when I had a sale come in so I didn't miss any when I was away from the PC but it was going to cost me a fortune

"I'm not sure were in the world you are but here in the UK all the phone companies now block SMS messages from websites because of the amount of spam generated. "

... sorry, that's simply not true. There are many companies that supply SMS text message services to businesses and it is very low cost.

To integrate SMS text into your website you can use a script like the ones at Txtlocal.com (see sig) - the service itself is totally free, you just pay for the SMS text messages that you send from 3p each.

Couldn't be more simple.

The messages are routed through Vodafone UK (across the internet) and then on to the UK handsets or other international networks.

Regards,

Alastair

3p sounds cheap but if I send myself an SMS every time a sale comes in It will cost over 200 per month

Easiest way is just to buy the service from someone, but if you like some challenge. Get a phone and one of those services that give you unlimited SMS for some money and build the gateway yourself with kannel. (kannel dot org)

The operators make it very clear that if you do this they will disconnect the number - the free SMS texts are not to be used for bulk SMS - only p2p text messaging.

Use one of the many online providers that have direct connections to the mobile operators over the internet.
