Sending SMS from rails

Clickatell is easy enough to use but cost about .064 / message.

You just need to post to a url

uri_str = “±+testing+how+long+a+sms+takes

response = Net::HTTP.get_response(URI.parse(uri_str))

then check the response for Net::HTTPSuccess and look for the clickatell confirmation ID

if response.body =~ /^ID:/

Thank you all, I’m already using a gateway and everything in fine in
terms of sending messages from my app, my last question was just about
the Unicode issue.
