Applescript SMS Message for Free
In my wild and crazy adventures using this drug we call the internet, I've come across a shell script that sends SMS messages straight to your veins phone through google for free (I'm all about the free things in life - hugs, sleep, pennies, samples at Costco, music... oh wait).
As a shell script it's not much use (to me), but wrapped in an AppleScript command, well, hold on to your butts.
It goes a little something like this -
- do shell script "curl -v -d gl='US' -d hl='en' -d client='navclient-ffsms' -d c='1' -d mobile_user_id='YOUR PHONE NUMBER HERE' -d carrier='ATT' -d ec='' -d subject='PUT YOUR SUBJECT HERE' -d text='PUT YOUR TEXT HERE' -d send_button='Send' http://www.google.com/sendtophone"
Be sure to change your carrier from "ATT" to whatever it is if it's different.
Also make sure your phone number is in the form of '1112223333'.
I've looked into it, and there's literally a bazillion uses for this. Lately, my mac's been eating hard drives, so I made this script an AppleScript app and then set SMARTReporter to launch it if there's going to be a hard drive failure.
