Some mobile phones you can talk to via AT commandset, either via USB cable or something else. (eg: I have used a Nokia 6230 with usb cable.. you can also use bluetooth). If you pay $5 or whatnot for unlimited SMS on a el-cheapo plan, it might work better than using the SMTP gateway (when tied to Nagios, etc..) as you can send SMS messages with the AT commandset. - Jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from [email protected] clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
