Send SMS from autoit or by externals tool

10 posts in this topic

Hi all,

there are a lot of sms providers on the web.

I would like my script to send an sms to me (even if i have to pay for that service)

Has anyone done anything like this? Maybe there is even an UDF for such things?

Another interresting alternative would be to send a message by using a messanger like telegram...

Or does anyone know of external tools that i can use for this job?

Any hints are welcome, thanks in advance.

yes i found some on the forum, i more wanted to ask if someone can recommend something that works well...

As far as i see most udfs are related to a specific service...can anyone recommend a service and an udf that simply works well?

@mLipok

would you mind sharing the code? I will probaly not use a polish service, but the code might still help me in getting a good start with some lokal service. Most of them provide APIs so i might implent one myself if i can not find what i am looking for...

i tried the second hit on the search results...

It requires that the carrier (in my case congstar) supports this, but congstar des not...

So i need a generic provider that sends the sms to the phone...

My previous company always used Messagebird (www.messagebird.com, no shares, just a happy user :) )... Very easy and accessible, flexible in reports, pricing etc., well-implemented REST API, pre-built libraries for java, python, php, GO. Also quite easy to send short stuff through a HTTP GET url, though if you can't predict your messages you may have to worry about URL encoding... Also a service that allows you to initiate sending an sms by sending an e-mail. Lots of ways to steer them.

A very speedy support department too, which is always good if you are commercially dependent on such a service. Then again, we used it for bulk messaging (and I mean *serious* bulk) and mostly from a Unix box through a Java application or, for smaller jobs, a bunch of PHP scripts. So I don't know if this is relevant for you, but we were always happy with their service.

My cell phone carrier have a account website where I, amongst many can view my current bill thus far, change my addons and, send text messages. If I needed something like this, I'd probably just make a script with IE UDF logging into said website, and uses text messaging from there :) I have like 1500 free text messages as well and only uses on the most 5, so that would be quite desirable xD Another option would be to use MightySMS if you have a Android phone, and practice a similar way just use MightySMS. Though it will be bit more clunky since that route is to tell my phone to send them and not just send them right off.

But it's a option if you feel like your carrier is giving you more free text messages that you currently can use up, or if in any other way this method becomes more desirable. If this weren't desirable for me, I'd go with AlienClones option.
