Question ID: 726398
Are there any companies out there that provide html code to embed a
call to mobile or text to mobile service. Skype seems like a possible
candiadate but I was looking more for a service that would be free to
customers (I pay the fee) and wouldn't require any type of software

Interesting question!. A service called CBFSMS is offering FREE
text messaging, but only to numbers in the UK area, and they only
allow you to provide a link to their service on your website:


Banners for your site:

However, I looked a little harder and found just what you're
looking for:

"SMS Enable your Web Site

 iPiPi Send SMS Form lets you add SMS text messaging capability
 to your web site by including a few lines of HTML code to any
 page of your web site. The generated form will look and feel
 the same as the rest of your web site. Visitors to your web
 site can send SMS messages to almost anyone in the world.
 You can provide this service free of charge or bill your users
 in any way you want."

This page tells you how to go about doing this:

"How to get started

 SMS enabling your web site takes only a few minutes. Just
 follow these steps:

- Open a new ipipi account or log into your current account
- Go to the Add SMS to Your Site link and register all pages
  on your web site where you want to have SMS Form included
- Read the terms and conditions (ipipi Send SMS Form Terms
  and Conditions) and press submit
- Copy the generated HTML code and paste it into the webpages
  of your website

 Make sure that your account has positive SMS balance - each
 SMS message sent from your website will create one debit
 transaction on your account."

This page shows you how the embedded service will appear on
your website:

And here are the instructions for using the embedded form:

"It is very simple to send a SMS message. You need to fill out
 three things on the form.

 1. To: Fill in with the mobile number of your recipient. Include
 country code, area code, and mobile number. Also do not at any
 leading zeros in the country and area code. For more help on
 number formating click here.

 2. Sender: Fill with the name of the sender. This will be added
 to the front of your message to identify you to the SMS recpient.

 3. Message: Fill in with the message you wish to send. You are
 limited to 150 characters for your message.

 When everything is filled in, click 'Send SMS' and your message
 will be delivered."

There's no need to download software - simply include the html code
in the pages in which you want the form to appear on your website.

This seems like exactly the solution you're looking for, and, since
I found no others like it, I hope you find it useful.
