I would like to know if is possible to send mass sms with an php agi script through asterisk?
For example: I have about 50 cellphone numbers I would like to text whenever theres a meeting, I should load the numbers from a database and send a message via web with php and have asterisk send it.
I’ve been googling about it but, I get a lot of providers that already do this but, I would like to learn how to do it myself since my budget is very minimum.
Thanks in advanced for your help and time.
When you say expensive… You are talking about pennies per SMS… Again –
if you want to cheat and go the email route – that would be free… It’s
unreliable and requires some thought…
If you want more information / consulting contact me off-list.
You may want to look into using google voice + pygooglevoice for this.
I set up something similar for a baseball team to notify parents. I had
to write a bunch of python scripts that were called from the dialplan
and set a timeout between them so that it would not lock itself out of
GV from the ‘mass SMS’.
