SMS gateway by country

List of SMS gateways

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of carriers providing Short Message Service (SMS) transit via SMS gateways.

This list explains which email address to use if one wants to send an email and have it arrive as a text message on someone’s phone. The number must contain no punctuation. For instance, to send to a number typically expressed in the USA as 987-555-0100, one would email 9875550100@SMS-gateway.

Some carriers have multiple gateways. The SMS gateway refers to Short Message Services which are capable of transmitting plain text messages only. MMS refers to “Multimedia Messaging Services” which are generally capable of carrying messages which include text, pictures and audio.
