Receive Text Message and schedule an email?

Total Noob to Asterisk but I did try searching for “Text Message”.

Anyways, I am looking into starting a serivce where a customer sends a text to 76222 (or whatever), and then gets a text message sent weekly or monthly, and said customer sees a charge on his phone bill.

Is this possible with Asterisk and how do I find out more info on setting up the receiving account (76222 or whatever)? I assume that I need to get involved with a telco…any pointers?

This is a joke:

  1. Get 76222 number
  2. Install software
  3. ???
  4. Profit!!!

Thanks in advance.
