to recieve via SMS (Text) Alert.
- Is there any charge for these text messages?
Unless you have an unlimited text messaging plan, you may be charged by your carrier. All standard carrier text-messaging fees apply. If you are charged for receiving text messages, you will be charged for receiving text messages from ASMSA. Normally, if you have an unlimited texting plan, you will not be charged anything by your carrier for that single text.
- My carrier isn’t supported. What do I do?
ASMSA utilizes a email-to-SMS service that all of the supported carriers provide. If you are able to find this service for your unsupported carrier, it will be happily implemented. Visit the homepage of this plugin to tell me about it or email me directly at email@example.com
- How is it you support Google Voice which has no Gateway for emails?
ASMSA has implemented a working PHP based form of API for communicating with Google Voice if you have entered valid login credentials for an existing Google Voice account.
- Why do my Google Voice SMS alerts break up into several messages?
Not only does Google Voice limit the SMS alerts to go to US phone numbers currently, but they also limit messages for the length as well. This is why they are broken down into multiple messages.
- Why do I see 2 messages in my Google Voice inbox?
This is a side effect of using Google Voice to send a text message to you own Google Voice number. Aside from the double posting in the inbox, this allows it to work as intended and forward this SMS Alert to all phones you need it sent to.
