Cool...I'm in a similar GF situation...I assume this will work with just about any VOIP provider as long as I know their link? I am using VoipStunt.com...

I didn't know about VoipStunt. But it seems to be another VOipBuster clone So it works.

Use this url: https://myaccount.voipstunt.com/clx/sendsms.php

It's funny to see the differences in prices between VoipBuster, VoipRaider and VoipStunt.
The application is exactly the same (except the looks) as well as the site... but the prices are different.

I'm see one bug in this software, when I'm trying to send sms for example to free destination 001112223344, but voipsms deleting zeros and sending messages to 1112223344, then I receive - insufficient funds on my account or didn't send any messages if account funded. Another one with the same zeros, when I'm trying to send sms to 111002223344 (111000223344 any numbers with double and more zeros) it sends to 1112223344 so number is wrong.
Can it be fixed?

Thank you.

Ah I see.

Bug 1: Only leading zero's should be removed. This is because of the format that VoipBuster expects. The format should be: [countrycode without the 00 or + sign][areacode without leading zero][number]
So for holland it should be +31 0123 456789
This number must be formatted to: 31_123_456789 (without the underscores)

Bug 2: 00110022003344 is changed into 11223344. This is wrong. It must be 110022003344.

I'll try to fix these bugs tonight. Thank you very much for testing and posting!

The bug with the incorrect formatting of the phonenumber is solved in the new version (1.1)

The other issue about the insufficient funds is not a bug. It's the result which the application receives after sending the message.

Great software.

However, I am still facing the same problem which I face with other VoIP SMS Software and that is my phone number is not sent so the user does not know what I am the one sending the text message (unless I tell them).

Am using VoipStunt which the URL you provided.

That is something which can only be set with the Windows Application. There you can verify your number and set your 'caller id'.
As far as I know.

If not, please let me know.

I have verified my numbers and I can even select those numbers when I use the Windows application.

I am currently located in the US so the country code is +1. I entered 11234567890 (where 1234567890) is my number and +11234567890 but in both instances, the ID that the recipient received was some other number (which is not even in my address book).

When I used other VoIP SMS software, the recipient would see my username when I sent an SMS using such software but now with your software, it sends something else altogether.

Do let me know if you need more information on my part.
