As part of the integration of our system within a company, it'd be great to extend the PM system so that as well as sending an email it could also send an SMS to the person's mobile number. I don't have direct access to the server, so anything requiring any extra software to run on the server, or extra PHP modules, is out of the question. The most we can do is copy in some extra PHP scripts (this has already caused us a few headaches, such as creating graphs (most free graphing utilities require GD2, which we don't have) and dealing with PDFs). Does anyone know of a good service that offers something we could use in this situation? (and no, hijacking one of those free online SMS forms is not an option [grin])

Clickatell is the one I've used (as doodlesketch suggests).

Rather than using their XML-based HTTP API, which I've found unreliable, why not use their SMTP-based API. You then get automatic queueing of outgoing SMSs via your MTA in case their server is down.

I switched from using HTTP, and it's much better.
