Hey rep, may I know why when I use smsglobal to send an sms to Singapore, it appears as gibberish on the receiving parties' phone? It has happened alot of times! Thanks.
Are you able to send the Singapore number to email@example.com for us to further investigate this matter?
so i guess its not available to existing customers?
I pass your offices on the way to work each morning, didn't realize you where in Melbourne, pretty cool!
Only for new members sorry.
I would only use this service if it had an iPhone app. I could make you an iphone app if you wanted…
Is this only for new members?
Does SMSglobal have an iPhone app and can it sync to the contacts on the phone?
We have a www.smsglobal.mobi site which can be accessed on your iPhone, however, this does not sync with your phone contacts. This can easily be done by importing them to your account online using a CSV file and can then be accessed on the .mobi site.
Thanks but it'd be good if you guys had an app. My wife uses the Pennytel app which lets you send 5c SMS (plus 8c untimed calls to landlines) and you can select the contacts directly from the iPhone so no need to keep a second contacts list up to date.
Thanks for the quick reply though! :)
While I don't have an iPhone I do use the SMSGlobal email to SMS feature so another option is to add an email address (with a mobile nbr) to the relevant contacts then use email (via a phone). I do this via Gmail (accessed from anywhere/any device).
for some reason, I can't log into the mobile website. "Incorrect username / password"
Same here…I can log into the normal site but not the mobile site.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and they will happily investigate this further.
I also am having trouble logging into the mobile website.
Perhaps this is a wide spread problem?
I'm using an iPhone 4 on iOS 4.01
The issues have been dealt with by our technical staff so it should be up and running now.
It would be good if this site could be accessed by any smart phone, not just an iPhone. I tried to browse to the .mobi address on my Nokia, but I just get a blank screen.
Btw, this still works -> http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/26052?page=1
SMSGlobal is great for Australian numbers, but international numbers are a bit hit and miss. For USA sms we switched to redoxygen.
Edit: not a sock puppet for redoxygen. :-) We use both providers depending on destination. They both have similar HTTP APIs. SMSGlobal is cheaper than redoxygen but sometimes it's not an option.
So I signed up for Twitter and followed SMSGlobalHQ then what?
I presume I get a promo code that I need before I sign up for the SMS service? I've not received anything. Has this worked for anyone?
Okay voting neg as this does not seem to work
Just sign up to smsglobal with the promo code "rock" and you'll get the same 225 free credits! - http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/26052?page=1
keep on advertising it and they will remove it!
i can confirm that the .mobi site DOES NOT work with my current account (it somehow does not check the right database for the username and password and rejects 100%)
smsglobal allows the user to set the sending number to anything! I can send a message to anyone from "NetBank" asking for personal information then take it from there (if I really want of course) ;-)
you can do the same thing with email, (set return address)
was extremly handy when i was sending out my bucks invites, put my best mans phone in there so he got the replies…
Is there anyway to check if the number has been spoofed or fake mobile number has been used?
I'm beginning to think this case may be reviewed into the future.
I'm 100% sure pennytel only allows you to send from verified numbers…
If this is the case, then why are other operators allowed to send sms using any number??? Something wrong here…
and pennytel and other apps on the iPhone are much cheaper than 10 cents for the first 5000.
haha I've sent a few messages to mates from God as pranks, one of em took it seriously and actually did what the text said.
Ahh got my code - "tweet"
Hmm could have "guessed" that.
