How to send

So simple - Email to one single Cell Phone

Sending a TXT message can be as simple as sending an e-mail. In the To field of the email put the

CellPhoneNumber@sms4u.co.nz

For example, 0219008000@sms4u.co.nz
Then type in the TXT message into the email body. Once sent, within a few minutes you will receive a Delivery Report e-mail back stating that the TXT message has been sent.

Sending broadcast SMS/TXT messages

Sending a TXT message to many cellphones is done by sending the e-mail to

broadcast@sms4u.co.nz

In the subject line put a reference that is meaningful to you
Type in the TXT message into the email
Then attached a "Comma Separated" file (CSV) of cellphone numbers to send to.
The first line of the CSV file should have the word Mobile, the second line is the first cellphone to send to.

e.g.
Mobile
021 454545
0275 45478

Once sent, within a few minutes you will receive an e-mail back stating that the TXT message has been sent.
