So I was trying to figure out how to send SMSs either through AMI or the dialplan (pretty much the same, either way would be acceptable to me), and came acrosshttp://forums.asterisk.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=77524&p=155168&hilit=SendText#p155168, which raised an interesting question.
Do I really need to supply an active channel to do this? Does this imply I can only send a remote SMS to cell phone that has an active channel (i.e. is on a call) in my Asterisk instance?
I’m a relative novice with Asterisk so I’m sure I’m missing something insanely obvious so any info is greatly appreciated.
