If your mobile can send SMS, the SMS Proxy app can be used as an SMS Center (SMSC) proxy. Any SMPP compliant SMS client, like Kannel, Apache Camel or Jasmin SMS, can be used to send SMS through this app. This is useful to automate SMS notifications, send bulk SMS.
If you don't have access to a real SMSC or a bulk SMS provider, the SMS Proxy can be used as a simple alternative.
The following video presents how to connect the Ozeki SMS gateway to the SMS Proxy to send text SMS. The same principle can be used to connect any other SMS client. Make sure that the client can connect to the proxy through a local network, which is typically a WiFi. The local WiFi IP can be found in the mobile WiFi settings. Normally it's 192.168.0.X. When setting up the SMPP connection in the SMS client just input the same IP assigned to the mobile and the port number configured in the SMS Proxy. The default port is 5011.
For security reasons, it is recommended to change the default port. It is also recommended to stop the SMS Proxy connection, when not in use, to avoid any unauthorized access.
The app is available at Amazon Appstore.
