SMS from clipper app

SMS from clipper app

SMS from clipper app

Is there a utility available for sending sms to mobile phone from a clipper app, with or without using the bulk-sms software.

RE: SMS from clipper app

there are sime winsock library for clipper.

sending a text can be the same as sending an email. you need to find out the gateway of the carrier.
if in the US, for example, sprint's text message is: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
verizon, is phonenumber@vtext.com, tmobile, is phonenumber@tmomail.net

ypou can google the carrier's gateway..

RE: SMS from clipper app

As Ali stated, it is really just a matter of sending an email for many carriers.

I email from within clipper/xharbour using the venerable blat program (free), which works quite well via SMTP and is small enough to invoke by RUNing from within most clipper apps.


RE: SMS from clipper app

Thanks Ali, thanks JockMullin. Got busy with some other work. Now started working on it. I connected my cell phone to the PC and able to see its modem configured on a com port. Thru Hyper-terminal I am able to send SMS also. Now this has to be automated thru the clipper app. I am finding problems in writing to com port thru tmy app. The error message is 'ACCESS DENIED".
I am using fopen, fwrite, ferror functions.
Can any one please help.

RE: SMS from clipper app

I remember when i used to write Clipper apps, i used to use modems plenty of times and i wrote my own terminal system (similar to ProCom Plus) i don't know if anyone remembers that.

Anyhow, i used a library called Telepathy that was perfect for using modems and dialing etc..


I don't know if they still able to sell you or give you a demo of the lib... or if you can find it to download it and purchase it.

I found gnokii's command line interface for sending SMS very useful.
