New in v0.6.6 (beta)

The message verb is used to send an SMS via a carrier using the SMPP protocol. It requires that you have added a BYOC carrier configured that supports SMS.

You can also send SMS via the REST API. See here for more details on that.

  "verb": "message",
  "to": "15083084809",
  "from": "16173334567",
  "text": "Your one-time passcode is 1234",
  "actionHook": "/sms/action"

You can use the following options in the message verb:

option description required
from sending number yes
to destination number yes
text text message to send yes
carrier name of BYOC carrier to use (useful only when you have multiple carriers configured with SMPP support, otherwise leave out) no
