Generic code for "texting"

I can send a text message to my cell phone by just sending an email to
my cell number @att.com.

Where can I get the protocol for other carriers?

My boss wants me to set up a form on our internal web site for sending
text messages to managers. Their phones are with various carriers
(ATT/Cingular, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.)

Thanks!

I wouldn't say this is the wrong group... This IS something that an
ASP developer would want to do, send the results of a form submission
via SMS. Perhaps if there were an error, an IT person could get a
text message with the error message from the server.

To the OP: I've been looking into this myself, try Googling for ASP
SMS and see if anything strikes your fancy.

I found this link and info:

verizon_virgin

I have email reminders sent to me for everything.
If you know the correct email address, you can also send
these messages to your cellular phone.
Here are the email addresses for the 6 most popular
cellular phone carriers:

T-Mobile: ph*********@tmomail.net
Virgin Mobile: ph*********@vmobl.com
Cingular: ph*********@cingularme.com
Sprint: ph*********@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon: ph*********@vtext.com
Nextel: ph*********@messaging.nextel.com

where phonenumber = your 10 digit phone number
If you don't know the phone carrier for the cell phone number
you are attempting to call, you can try this universal service.

How do you get this to work, Dave?

I am also with AT&T, but when I emailed a test message to myself, I got a
failure notice because of invalid recipient.

I think that's because AT&T is not @att.com - I thinkt it's @mmode.com OR if
the number was originally Cingular, then it's @mobile.mycingular.com
