port directed sms from a web app?

hi gang, looking at various sources about sms and wondering if theres a way to send port directed sms from a web app or something?  i was looking at twillio, but i dont see anything that looks like a port in the various api calls.


is port directed sms a blackberry only thing, or is it aupported by other vendors, devs and service providers?

Re: port directed sms from a web app?

I can't really comment on services that will let you SEND a port directed SMS, but it's a standard that many carriers use, and generally the main reason to use it is to mesh with a carrier's existing system. You can send a port directed SMS from a BlackBerry to another BlackBerry.


What is your use case? Why not just use Push instead? https://developer.blackberry.com/native/documentation/cascades/device_comm/push/index.html

You'll need to write a native extension to do this.
