Send SMS from App using Email to SMS Gateway

Email to SMS Gateway Want to send SMS to a mobile phone from your app. Don’t have an SMS API that you can use? We can Email to SMS Gateway approach instead. Basically almost all the telephone carries generally expose an Email to SMS service where in if you send an email to a specified address with MDN (10 digit Mobile Number) it will in turn convert into an SMS and send it to the phone. Doing so does not require any special SMS API but need to program to an API that will send an email with phone no. is all that will be required. There is  no cost or authentication required for sending the message as an email,  however when it goes as an SMS to the phone, the receiver may be charged based on his/her plan with carrier. Also from a logic perspective in your app, you may have to ask the user their telephone provider or recipient provider in order to pick the right email address to send it to.
