I am programming a mobile app which send sms. I need a gateway that let me put a "from" parameter. On many gateways, I can only subscribe, put my mobile phone number as the sender after a verification process. The main problem is that the phone number verification is only available for my and not for my users. My customers can send an sms but the receiver does not see their mobile phone number in the "from" field.

Do you know a good gateway which support that (in an automated way) ?

Thank you for your help.

You need to ensure that this service is enabled by your chosen telco provider as well (if your gateway gives you a choice). We wanted to do this about 3 years ago (in Australia) and Vodafone were the only company that even knew what we were talking about! – Mark Henderson Mar 11 '10 at 9:42

we use cardboardfish, setting a from number is a matter of giving an extra parameter when POSTing to their HTTPSMS service URL
