Send SMS script action

SMS actions only apply to scripts configured for mobile devices.

When a mobile script uses a Short Message Service (SMS) action, the mobile device sends a message to an application. You may send a message to a short code or phone number.

Use the Send SMS action to send an SMS and the Receive SMS action to receive a reply.
