text message to cell phone

Hi:
 
I have looked at several posts and was unable to find a solution to send text messages to any cell phone.  Can this be done? I have an application that monitors a condition and needs to send out a short text message to indicate an alarm.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks

The thing is that every text messaging cell phone should have an email address, and LabView can certainly do emailing so yeah I think it's do-able . But please note that receving an emailed text message cost money while a phone to phone text usually is free to the receiver

Hi Slingee:

I am aware of the email option (previously discussed in the forums), and I tried sending a plain text email via LV to my cell phone (T-mobile).  It did not work.  However, when I send an email from my Outlook to the cell phone at XXXXXXXXXX@tmomail.net, it works. I hope there is a definitive solution to send text messages (free of cost) to any cell phone via LV.  By the way, I have LV 7.1

Thanks

Does this help? Not labview specific, but I don't think it should be too
hard in labview if one can do it with hyperterm

If that's no help, there are lots of other websites that talk about SMS

It works for me with my T-Mobile phone with both Outlook and the SMTP Email Send Message VI. Is this the function you've tried and do you get any errors generated when you use it?

Dennis:

I get the following error code:

Error 16550 occurred at SMTP:
550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for 1234567890@tmomail.net

Possible reason(s):

LabVIEW:  (Hex 0x40A6) 550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable. For example, the mailbox was not found or there is no access.

That is strange. It is fine sending messages to other addresses? ie. some normal computer based address
Could you send a message to a gmail or a yahoo mail or hotmail ?

Slingee: I am able to send email to other addresses (my work address) via the SMTP VI.  It works fine... just can't send to my cell phone.

I would try to send a messaage to an external address. This could be caused by mail server configuration.

When I was in school, I could telnet into the mail server and send mail, as long as the address was on campus... it didn't allow me to relay to an external mail system.
