SMS::Send::AU::MyVodaphone is an regional SMS::Send driver for Australia that delivers messages via the website Web2TXT feature.

Using your phone number as a login, and your existing password, this driver allows any Australian with a Vodafone to send SMS messages (with the message cost added to your account).

Preparing to Use This Driver

As well as setting up your account and password, the Web2TXT feature requires acceptance of an additional disclaimer and conditions of use form.

You must manually accept this disclaimer and conditions before you will be able to use this driver.

While we certainly could make the driver do it for you, acceptance of the terms of use implies you understand the cost structure and rules surrounding the use of the Web2TXT feature.


Other than dieing on encountering the terms of use form, no other protection is provided, and the authors of this driver take no responsibility for any costs accrued on your phone bill by using this module.

Using this driver will cost you money. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED



  # Create a new sender using this driver
  my $sender = SMS::Send->new(
        _login    => '04 444 444',
        _password => 'abcdefg',

The new constructor takes two parameters, which should be passed through from the SMS::Send constructor.

The params are driver-specific for now, until SMS::Send adds a standard set of params for specifying the login and password.


The _login param should be your phone number. That is, the phone to send from and to be billed to for the messages.

The login should be an Australian-format number. That is, starting with zero-four "04".


The _password param should be your password.

During construction, the driver will actively log in to the website using the credentials provided, to verify they are correct.

It will not check for your acceptance of the terms and conditions at this point. That is done at send_sms-time.

Returns a new SMS::Send::AU::MyVodafone object, or dies on error.
