How Do I… Send SMS messages via REST API? (SMS API)

It’s easy to send SMS text messages from within your application or connected device with the Telecoms Cloud API. Just use the /sms/outbound endpoint and first pass the destination number, then the “from” number, and then up to 160 characters of text. The “from” number is either any service number on your Telecoms Cloud account, or if you don’t have one, you can specify a default “from” number which you will find in your account settings.

Once you’ve sent a text message in your application, you can check its delivery status by using the sms_id returned by the outbound endpoint when you sent the message, like this.

With direct connections into all the main network operators in the UK and compatibility with over 800 mobile networks worldwide, your text message will be delivered within (60) seconds – usually even quicker!
