SMS API to Send SMS from Way2Sms on May – Part 4

Hi Guys,

Way2sms updating their sites for security reason. They are not providing any API to send SMS from their gateway. Due that reason we have some issues in past, in future also they will change. There is no guarantee for this API will work for a long.

After analysis of way2sms website,  this sms API have been developed this code to send SMS from way2sms website. In this program we are using CURL to communicate with way2sms website and sending SMS from our API. Curl is a command line tool for transferring data with URL. Using Curl we can post data to the targeted URL.


  • Curl need to enable in our machine.
  • Way2sms account needed to send sms.

Things need to remember before trying to send SMS:

  1. We are using Curl method, With helps the user to login into the Way2sms application and sending SMS from it.
  2. In Curl, we are storing the token information in cookie file, so that make the cookie file path as writable one. Else the you can’t send SMS. Currently we are storing cookie file path in temp directory.
  3. Every user has unique identification Id, Way2SMS will validate that key before sending the SMS.
  4. While try to send SMS from Way2sms, it must match the following criteria username, password and identification id.

Steps to send sms:

  1. Download the sendsmsV3.5 via Way2SMS file.
  2. Extract the downloaded files into your web directory.
  3. Replace the exact values in the following URL to send SMS using our API, http://<webserverpath>/?username=XXXXXXXX&password=XXXXXXXXX&receiver=XXXXXXXXXX&message=XXXXXXXXXXXX

Version 3.5, released on May 2013 (updated on 1st)
