Text API

An API for sending and/or receiving SMS text messages between an application and a mobile device. Text APIs include SMPP, HTTP, REST, SMTP, Web Services and others. Text APIs are typically capable of being used for bulk SMS and the sending and/or receiving of high volumes of SMS messages. Operations included in a text API allow SMS to be sent, received, cancelled and replaced. Other operations often available include the ability to modify a phonebook or distribution lists that are used to send messages to one or more recipients. A text API can include support for webhooks that allow the SMS provider to push inbound (MO) SMS and delivery receipts to a customer application. Read more about SMS APIs. See also SMS API
