Hi there, I have been using D7SMS and they recently stopped working correctly they aren’t replying to customer support requests for help so I needed to switch to something with seemingly more documentation and adoption like Twilio. The only problem is I’m having trouble getting it to work with my limited knowledge of the subject of API. I am using a trial version and I’m unsure if that is the issue, or if I’ve configured the settings wrong in some way. I’m trying to test the one phone number I have been authorized to send to on the Twilio portal just in case that’s the problem as well.
The user that goes by @Mykhailo posted this the other day and I followed their short how-to and I’m not having any luck getting this to work.
This was the image he posted:
In the picture the payload wasn’t formatted exactly the way that Splynx had it so I tried capital From/To and lowercase from/to and it didn’t change anything.
I’m getting the following when I perform a test
HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
If I change the Authorization I get the error
HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
If I change the URL I get
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
This makes me believe I’m close, but something I’m doing is incorrect.
The Gateway URL I’m using is the one in my account information that I copied. Maybe the “account” I’m pretty sure the SID is accurate in the URL and in the authorization. I have a “messaging services” but that gives me a 401 when it’s used in the Authorization / URL or one or the other.
The reason I’m trying to use Twilio is that it seems to be half the price of everything else available, and has some robust options available if I intend to build an auto-reply system in it.
If there are other recommendations on products that are similar to the cost of 0.0080 per SMS and available in the USA and only sent to other USA customers.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations on other products, or if you need additional information on troubleshooting this. Thank you very much.
