Description:
This hack will allow you and your members to receive a text message on their cell phone when they receive a new private message on your forums! They can setup their cell phone number and cell phone provider via the edit email & password page in UserCp and check the option for receiving the text message on the edit options page. This further allows you and your memebers to take your site anywhere you go!

I Anthony Scudese am also not responsible for charges due to reading of text messages or sending of text messages. I am also not responsible for spamming, advertising, or rapid text message sending to any one members' or customers' inbox. I am also not responsible for legal action taken by any of the used cell phone providers or their affiliates(you will not be sued as long as no complaints are filed and the system is not abused!). This disclaimer is only to make me(Anthony Scudese) not legally responsible or held accountable due to someone abusing or misusing this code.

Important Notes:
-It is urged for webmasters never to include $bbuserinfo[cellnum] in any templates or any part of their site as it will leak the cell phone number of the logged in user to the person viewing the page thus releasing very private information.
-It may take several minutes for a text message to arrive at a cell phone and the speed depends on your server and the cell phone provider, so please be patient.
-Due to the merging of Cingular Wireless and AT&T Wireless I am not sure as of the moment where their online text messaging will go but I will of course keep all people updated.
-Spamming or high volume text messaging of people's inboxes is prohibited and may be punishble by law if committed.

Great hack, I think that any time someone tests this baby out with a wireless company other then ATT, it should be noted here so we can tell pass the information along to our respective forum users.

yes i do urge people who are using this to keep me updated on if the hack truely worked and if it sent you a text message. this will help me to update the supported providers list and inform people of which providers have been tested. remember this is a group effort to make this a great mod/hack
