Sending SMS to mobile using LabVIEW

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am in the process of developing a VI which would be able to send text messages to multiple mobile numbers if any error occurs in the main application.

I tried to use Internet Connectivity toolkit's SMTP E-Mail VI, then created a filter in gmail, but still I cant get the SMS thing from LV to work.

Is there any other way to do this?

Thanks!

With some limitations*, the skype sdk can send SMS.

*: a skype account with skype credit must be open by the user on the computer. More info about limitations.

Hope this helps

Isnt there any other way to send text messages? I fear that my client wont be allowing softwares like skype to be installed on their systems

Oh.. maybe I just don't use it properly but I can't get what I'm looking for with the LAVA search.. Bless google!

I found this thread in google cache. Maybe it's been moved to LAVA 2.0.. but I couldn't find it :-S

Hope this helps

EDIT:

right.. I've just figured how to use LAVA search... just dial "Send SMS" (with the brakets) in the search field, and the result are fine ;)

Typically cellphone providers have email addresses associated with cellphone numbers. Maybe you can simply send an email to the phone. Here is a list of some examples I found with a quick search:

Alltel

[10-digit phone number]@message.alltel.com

Example: 2125551212@message.alltel.com

AT&T (formerly Cingular)

[10-digit phone number]@txt.att.net

Example: 2125551212@txt.att.net

Boost Mobile

[10-digit phone number]@myboostmobile.com

Example: 2125551212@myboostmobile.com

Nextel (now part of Sprint Nextel)

[10-digit telephone number]@messaging.nextel.com

Example: 7035551234@messaging.nextel.com

Sprint PCS (now Sprint Nextel)

[10-digit phone number]@messaging.sprintpcs.com

Example: 2125551234@messaging.sprintpcs.com

T-Mobile

[10-digit phone number]@tmomail.net

Example: 4251234567@tmomail.net

Verizon
