Send SMS from India

Asked by Nishant on 2012-06-02

I am trying to use your application to send SMS using computer. But none of the gateways are from INDIA. So how do I either

a) Send SMS over the internet

OR

b) Add a Gateway so that the SMS can be sent.

It depends what do you want to do. Some of the supported gateways are international:

So you just need to create an account and then you can send messages to the whole world. Of course all these gateways are paid. But you can use it to send SMS to Indian mobile phones.

There might be some gateways in India that you prefer. For example in some countries it is common that some cell providers offer a free gateways with limited reach (usually it sends messages for free only to the customers of that particular cell provider). I don't know if that is the case in India. Or it can be a paid gateway, but much cheaper. Whatever is the reason, if you want to use a different gateway than currently supported, someone needs to write support for it:

You can do it yourself, if you are a programmer, or you can find someone else from India who can do that.
