    hello my name is Angel and I'm from Spain

    I have an open account with you with the user: gelygrande@hotmail.com

    I'm making reservation forms for the restaurant: www.rustikacafe.net

    I wonder if I can integrate a message service SMS confirmation to the customer and / or also the restaurant

    thanks

    Hello Angel.  It won't be possible to send an email-to-SMS message within JotForm's basic features.  However, most mobile phone service providers provide nowadays an email gateway for SMS services.

    Example (US mobile phone services):

    T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net 
    Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com 
    Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com 
    Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com
    Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com

    Where phonenumber is the recipient's 10-digit phone number

    For the restaurant, it's easy to set up a recipient for the email notification since you can manually enter the email address there.  Typing in the 10-digit mobile phone number followed by the email address domain name should work fine.

    However, this will be quite difficult to achieve for the auto-responder since the form user should know the email address domain name  (@domain.com) that he will be using, together with his mobile phone number.

    You can find a list of a mail-to-sms gateway on this web page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SMS_gateways

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks.
