I have yet to try it out, but Clickatell seems like a nice, developer-friendly SMS gateway.
They offer a trial account where you get a few messages for free (although they override the message content with a default text), so I went ahead and tried it out.
It’s really a matter of minutes - if not seconds - to get started:
schmidp@dna:~$ curl -i "http://api.clickatell.com/http/sendmsg?user=$USER&password=$PASSWORD&api_id=$APIID &to=$TO&from=$FROM&text=$TEXT" /HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Tue, 23 Jun 2009 11:59:22 GMT Server: Apache/2.2.3 (Red Hat) X-Powered-By: PHP/5.2.6 Connection: close Content-Type: text/html ID: 352178af3b24f03ef83997de1024eead schmidp@dna:~$
I haven’t compared their prices with other gateway providers since I don’t have a real need for it right now.
