    obviously Google would have the ability to do this, I think they are holding back on us from some reason (For example if they added it right now it may be exploited in some way)

    yea it would be easy for them to add it but I think it would make it possible for international users to text each other without the hefty long distance fees or international credits. actually if you set the email to come from a gmail server you might be able to get this to work. i'm going to test it and i'll let you know if it works.

    i'm trying to add my gmail address but it keeps saying network email not supported, if i try my aol address it just shows the help menu

    also how do i encrypt my email password to change the config file.
    nvm it did it automatically.

    if i try to add my email after i've already added my phone number i just get
    network email not supported for any email i type.
    if i try to add my email with an empty email.sav file i get the error below. then if i type /text list users it shows "null," if i try to do anything after this it just shows the help menu

    The Telecom NZ one doesn't seem to work. I've tried '/text add Telecom 027XXXXXXX', '/text add Telecom +6427XXXXXXX' and '/text add Telecom 6427XXXXXXX'.

    Neither of the 3 work. :3

    I don't understand well how this plugin works...

    Who is sending the SMS ? And who will be the identified sender of the SMS on the phones ?

    For example, if I install this plugin on my server, and some users have subscribed to watch other players, when they will receive SMS, who will be the sender of the SMS ? And who will be charged for those SMS ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Same question.

    In the next update there will be a confirmation email sent and it will try more than one gateway
    The text is sending through an email to sms gateway, the text will be from whatever the email is set at in the config ([email protected] by default) The receiver of the text will be charged their normal rates. For example, if the receiver has unlimited texting then they will not be charged. If they have 100 texts a month and go over then they will be charged for each text over.

    add a way to text back from the phone to the chat in the server?

    Can you list all the SMS Gateway you are using in your plugin please ?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    PS: Does it work in France with Orange ?

    cool, i cant test my theory about Gvoice with out this feature but if it works for you, you could give it a go.
    this will only work if the message is coming from your gmail address
    1. check Settings>Text Forwarding> (gmail address) in Google Voice
    2. send text to google voice number from cell phone.
    3. check email for forwarded message and copy the from address.
    4. in plugin set your email as the one you copied.
    5. test sending a message from plugin.

    The current supported carriers are listed above, and yes Orange is listed.

    Will you add lithuanian cell phone providers :
  17. Hey, I was wondering if you had heard of Tesco Mobile? (This is not T-Mobile)
    If you could maybe add that? (My phone does not support emails btw so I cannot send you that)
    I would definitely use this if that provider was supported :p
  18. Offline


    I would like to request that you support google voice.
    This would not only allow existing GV users, but would be a workaround for any other users who can't get it to work as GV is free. :)

    I am getting this with the most recent bukkit build (709) this error also adds another line to the emails.save therefore adding my name to the "/text list users" list over and over. I am now on there like 20 times.... this is a pretty serious error...
    **more info** this only happens once you add a player to the text list using the /text add (carrier) (number) command. It only happens to the player that is added, therefore since i am the only one added its only happening when i log in, and does not happen when logging in on a test account.

    Could you add support for the French provider "Simplicime" ?

    Just had an idea - What about adding a feature (only for admins, or for someone with the correct permission node) that allows you to send a message to all numbers/emails in the database. Would this be possible?
    Maybe nodes and commands could be as follows:
    • "/text all [MESSAGE]" "textplayer.textall" - Sends a message to all phone numbers and email addresses in the database.
    • "/text allphones [MESSAGE]" "textplayer.textallphones" - Sends a message to all phone numbers in the database.
    • "/text allemail [MESSAGE]" "textplayer.textallemail" - Sends a message to all emails in the database.
    Would you be able to implement this?
    This way, admins could notify all players (who added their phone numbers/emails) of a change, or simply send them a message

    A few requests. Sorry if I didn't read, I was in a hurry.

    - Allow the person recieveing the text to stop recieving texts/emails? Maybe send unsubscribe or stop to stop services.
    - Allow the person to reply through text or email.

    Request: Text commands as well?

    can you add a feature that will text you is ANYONE logs in? I would like to know when to monitor my server... Other than that, this is GENIUS!
