Can jotform alert form submission to a cell phone via SMS?Asked by universalcomps on October 01, 2010 at 08:18 PM
Yes, you can. It is possible to send a text message to your cell phone. Most cell phone providers support this. For example, if you are using Sprint PCS, create a new email message (using Email Alerts button on the form builder) and configure it to send the email to the SMS address like this:
(Each email address must be comma separated. )
Here is a list of cell phone providers for US:

Thank you for your answer.
my carrier is ATT, for some reason, the notification I created didn't work. I didn't receive the text.
is there any trick that I should know?
The ATT Address has changed to: Your 10 digit email@example.com
Super helpful thank you.
But when the text message comes in it says its from firstname.lastname@example.org is there anyway to change this?
When you set up the email notification, please make sure that the Sender E-mail is set to E-mail and not email@example.com.
For your convenience, I took the initiative to change the email notification of the Request Cleaning form for you. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
Thank you for using JotForm!
Why does it still say firstname.lastname@example.org in the top of the text message? Shouldn't it have the senders full name in there.
When it comes through email it is ok but when you get it via text to cell phone it is not?
Please configure your mail notification sender settings properly. Go to Setup & Embed > Email Alerts > New Application then click Reply-To and Recipient settings in the bottom of the Compose Email wizard.
Change Sender Name to "Full Name" and Sender E-mail to "E-mail" then click Finish.
Also, set your E-mail field to Required so that the sender e-mail does not default to email@example.com whenever the e-mail field is left blank.
To set a field as required, click on it then click the Required button in the toolbar.
Let me know if these solutions help.
I did all that and it says text from firstname.lastname@example.org?
Thank you for your response.
