    Hello,

    I have someone's mobile phone number and would like to send them a text message using my email account.

    I believe that I will need to know their gateway address. and for this their phone provider.

    Unfortunately. I do not know either of these parameters.

    Advice please

    ps. Please give a much information as you can regarding the sending of the text

    I am in the UK

    I needed to remove the 0 from the beginning of the number to enable to system.

    The carrier is Telefonica UK. No sms gateway address was given.

    I tried to find the Telefonica gateway, but was unsuccessful. It seems to be O2.

    There were a couple of gateways published, but none was found to work

    Interestingly, I put my own phone number into the carrier search engine and it gave the carrier as
    'Everything Everywhere EE - (T-Mobile)'. However, the SIM card is for Virgin
