Hi,

Is there available in New Zealand a web or email 2 MMS service so that my linux webapp can send out MMS messages to cell phones? I have also looked at MBuni (Linux) and NowSMS (Windows) but believe they will need soap or eaif connections to the MMSC of Vodafone and/or Telecom - which as I understand it is not available.

Cheers
Mark

NowSMS documentation suggests that I can do this via a GPRS modem with a sim card provioned for MMS. So, I guess if I get a Vodem and install NowSMS that might do the trick??

I've never actually tried MMS messages but will have a play when I get some spare time.

Does the Vodem suported the full ATA specs? I was under the impression it didn't therefore it may not work.

Im not sure if the Vodem supports the full ATA spec, but one can only try I guess. I have also been looking at MMSClient, a linux lib to send/receive SMS/MMS messages and these devices ... http://www.telit.co.it/modules.asp. I need to make a call on what modem to get. There are quite a few Vodems for sale on TradeMe, but still need to get the sim provisioned. A lot of money if it cant do the job.
