SMS::Send::DeviceGsm - An SMS::Send driver for Device::Gsm.


  my $sender = SMS::Send->new('DeviceGsm',
        _baudrate => '19200', 
        _port     => '/dev/ttyS1',
  # Send a message to ourself
  my $sent = $sender->send_sms(
        text => 'Messages have a limit of 160 chars',
        to   => '+61 4 444 444',
  # Did it send?
  if ( $sent ) {
        print "Sent test message\n";
  else {
        print "Test message failed\n";


SMS::Send::DeviceGsm is an SMS::Send driver that uses Device::Gsm to deliver messages via attached hardware.

You provide the hardware port and the baudrate to use. Consult Device::Gsm for further information on what devices and baudrates are supported.


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( 'DeviceGsm',
        _baudrate => '19200', 
        _port     => '/dev/ttyS1',

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 _baudrate param defaults to '19200'.


The _port param is the serial port to connect to. On Unix, can be also a convenient link as /dev/modem (the default value). For Win32, COM1,2,3,4 can be used.

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


  # Send a message to a particular address
  my $result = $sender->send_sms(
        text => 'This is a test message',
        to   => '+61 4 1234 5678',

The send_sms method sends a standard text SMS message to a destination phone number.
