Hi fellow Nerds, I'm new here but grateful for your help in advance :)


I have tried a few products but they're all sending from a shortcode. I really need this to be a normal number that it comes from (either mine or a virtual number)


What I am hoping to achieve is to send txts from an NZ number, (not shortcode) Then I want notifications of responses so that I can re-txt the people an answer to their query.


Any suggestions?

There are a few options to use an Android device as an SMS Gateway, or GSM/3G devices connected to a computer.


My previous employer used Diafaan SMS Server software and it was rock solid - the only issue we ever had with it related to USBAnywhere hardware flaking out. You could probably pick up a 3G/4G USB stick, install Diafaan on a device, and set it up as an email SMS gateway with a whitelist for incoming email addresses. This is a setup I've already seen and used in action, and it was quite good.

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

We imported a few SMS Eagle devices from Poland, they have been very good.
