Yesterday I created a script as well as this...
(Spero di non aver sbagliato in inglese...)

Mi avete battuto sul tempo ehehe..


Ho notato che avete usato anche lo stesso script che ho trovato io xD
Solo che avete lasciato il print_r quindi se uno lo usa gli ciulla dei soldi..

Hi all,
the source code of the Add-on is on the SVN repository, check out it from there.

Abbiamo creato un'equivalente discussione in italiano, comunque mi ero scordato di togliere il print_r :) Il link a quel pezzo di codice è nei credits nel sorgente, ciao

Excuse me if i am being stupid but I am a little confused. Does this send an sms to your mobile? becayuse i have tried it several times with a dif number format and all i get is "status should be successfully updated" but I don't get any sms?

nono this service simply update your Facebook status!
This kind of service we call "Add-on", namely a service that doesn't send sms but do something else. Because goText is made to send SMS, those Add-on has a step more useless that is the phonenumber field, so we suggest to put any number, for example 1.
So when you see "Add-on" in our service list, remember that its aim is not to send SMS!

I've updated the script from

now handles authentication errors and a workaround for italian and spanish special chars. At the moment, they are both working but the official version will be last one.
you find it also on the SVN  8)
