Some of this may be part of the REST and RootCloud API support provided with the OAK?  Noted here are ways to use SMS for direct messages.

I've looked at https://www.TWILLIO.com/ more than a few times but never had cause to use it.  $1/month for a number and $1 per 130 messages sent or received.  Thst is one of a few options I just came across Another related one is https://temboo.com/pricing - both are tied into this sample:

Also, a little known fact is that you can send SMS to an email address (as an email).  For example, if my number was 555-555-5567 on the AT&T network, the corresponding SMS email address would be 5555555567@txt.att.net.  I've included a link below that shows a number of these services, which differ by carrier (1).  The general rule with SMS applies to the email sent to the carrier's relay.  The message may be chopped up into 160 character chunks, and stopping after some unknown number of chunk, so you'll need to keep the message short.
