Michael M:
Does anyone know if it's possible to have notifications here send a text message to a phone number? Before I start looking at different/other ways to see how to do that.

Do you mean for replies to threads and/or PM's here?

it sounds like an interesting feature to enable/install/configure. I like the idea

If you want all correspondence from FoCC sent as text messages, you could change your forum email address to your 10 digit phone number @ your cell phone provider.
Then set up notifications to send an email.
That should work.

Once you have the correct gateway domain for your carrier, you can change your FoCC email address to your phone number @ your gateway domain.
Then any notifications sent to your email address will instead be sent via text.

*One final thing to note is if you use Boost, Cricket Wireless, Republic Wireless, Straight Talk, Ting, or Tracfone -- all of which are mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) -- you may need to enter the gateway address belonging to either Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, or AT&T, rather than those in the above list, as they all piggyback on these major networks.
