No recurring billing, add-ons, or client library dependencies.

$   curl -X POST '' \
        -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
        --data-urlencode 'phone=4444444444' \
        --data-urlencode 'message=Welcome to smallSMS!' \
        --data-urlencode 'key=smallsms'
Using the requests library:
                import requests

url = ""

payload = 'phone=4444444444&message=Hello%2C%20World%21&key=smallsms'
headers = {
'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'

response = requests.request("POST", url, headers=headers, data = payload)

Using the RestSharp library:
                var client = new RestClient("");

var request = new RestRequest(Method.POST);

request.AddHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
request.AddParameter("phone", "4444444444");
request.AddParameter("message", "Hello, World!");
request.AddParameter("key", "smallsms");

IRestResponse response = client.Execute(request);


Using the smallSMS API

smallSMS is a simple api. The best way to get started is to try it yourself.

Here's an example success response after sending an SMS:

{"success": true, "quotaRemaining": 42, "textId": 3a7d4652-5a90-412c-b45e-8f0ca0b3a749}

Example out-of-quota or invalid key response:

{"success": false, "quotaRemaining": 0, "error": "Out of quota"}

Example response to request with phone, message, or key missing:

{"success": false, "error": "Incomplete request"}

Look up text delivery status

Using the textId given by a successful sent text, load /status/<textId>. For example, if your textId is 3a7d4652-5a90-412c-b45e-8f0ca0b3a749:

$ curl
{"status": "DELIVERED"}

Checking your quota

Use /quota/<key> to view remaining quota. For example if your key is ABBA:

$ curl
{"success": true, "quotaRemaining": 42}
