Account Registration with SMS Verification

Post by Linda Carter » Sun Jul 18, 2010 12:25 am

Do you have any idea how Google's system works? They send random numbers to cell phones from each country. After checking the code on your cell phone, then the registration can be made.

Can someone use a phpBB board to send SMS messages to any number from any country? Will the admins have to spend any money or hire any service to do that?

You'd need some sort of gateway to be able to send SMS messages from your web server.
This isn't going to be free, or you would be able to put the phone companies out of business ;)

There is a mod using SMS for notification, but not for registration yet. http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=2069445
I abandoned all of my mods.
