Long Description:

Send SMS to a “SMS Gateway” using the HTTP protocol.

 

Anatella uses the HTTP protocol to connect to the following gateway:
 

Kannel: See http://www.kannel.org/
 

The “SMS gateway” Android Application:

See http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.apksoft.android.smsgateway

 

The “SMS Gateway Ultimate” Android Application:

See http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.icecoldapps.smsgatewayultimate

 

The Android applications have the following limitations:

 

No “branding” inside the “source/origin phone number”.
 

No delivery report.
 

No FLASH SMS, No “SMS to the SIM toolkit”.
 

No more than 100 SMS per hour: This is a limitation imposed by the Android OS.
 
You can remove this limitation if you install the following application on your Android phone (Warning: This app requires root access):

http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.infinit.sms

 

 
Concerning the “delivery reports”: You can configure the Kannel software to obtain delivery reports stored inside a MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL database: More about this subject here:  
 

http://www.kannel.org/download/1.5.0/userguide-1.5.0/userguide.html#AEN3161

Thus, when using Kannel, you can access the delivery reports with the simple ANATEL~4_img542 ReadODBC Action from Anatella.
