Sending SMS Reminders

Postby salopian » Tue Oct 10, 2017 1:58 pm

I would like to send SMS reminders. I am in the UK and the provider on the VueMinder setup page does not seem to cover the UK.
How can I send SMS to a UK phone?

Hi salopian, the your mobile carrier doesn't appear in the "Mobile carrier" drop-down list in the SMS settings, then your carrier probably doesn’t provide an email-to-SMS gateway. VueMinder requires an email-to-SMS gateway in order to send SMS reminders through a mobile carrier.

There’s a web-based option that will work with any mobile carrier. Signup is free and you’ll get 5 message credits to test that it works:

After signing up for an account, send an email to support@smsmatrix.com and ask them to enable international messaging on your account, since it might be disabled by default. After you get an account, enter your login and password in the SMS/Voice settings.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
