I've actually looked into it. The bad news is that the cell phone companies there don't have the same deal with the email addresses that will send a text to your phone. Any company can be added that has the email to text type system.

Maybe in the future, though!

Edit: Now is the future! :p Australia is supported. Remember the limits on which companies can be supported, which amounts to those who have the email-to-text services.

That style is significantly different from the default one, and it's impossible to be able to search and replace in every single style code. Sorry :( you'd have to do the template changes manually. There are instructions in the readme.

Notice on the find and replace in the readme, what you're trying to find may vary slightly, especially if you're using a different style. You can see the general structure of your code, though, and copy it accordingly.

I've updated the modification with a list of supported companies. Like I've mentioned, this can only work with companies that offer a public email address where people can email someone and have it sent as a text message. This seems to only be a common thing in the US. I apologize for lack of support for other areas, but that's beyond my control. :p

That depends on if they have the said "texting emails". For example, with Alltel, you can send an email to [email protected] (xxx being the phone number) and Alltel turns that into a text message to that phone number. If those companies have an email or a system like that, then yeah, I could. :)

If anybody has companies which have a texting email like that which I don't have added, let me know what they are, and what the emails are and I'll add them. ;)

Edit: I found Rogers, and they do have such an address. I'll look into the others you listed and try to update them later today. :)

Not necesscarily. This lets a user specify their cell phone number in their user options just like their email address, and receive alerts and messages that way.

wow g8

CompuJonathan 19 Jun 2008 23:50

Rob,

Would it be possible to user the "from" address in the email send the users email address on file? That way a type of reply could be made?

For a more complicated system, it would be nice to integrate maybe SMTP into the script and have it receive SMS email replies to maybe [email protected] ... just an idea.

Thanks!
Jonathan

Product Installed, all template edits were made during installation and verified. Still not showing up on the UserCP menu.

Any ideas?
