  • Handles text requests similarly to TextMarks Mobile-Originated SMS gateway:
    • Request typically starts with a TextMark keyword.
    • If TextMark requested is dynamic, remote script is executed as usual.
    • Response is returned within API response (as response) rather than sent as text message.
  • If valid auth_user is specified, the request is as if it were sent by that user's phone.
  • With no auth_user, the request is anonymous.
  • Additional TextMark meta-information may be included in tm node of response.
  • Only one response is returned, and complex requests that result in multiple text messages are not recommended.


JSON response.head.rescode==0 for success, or error code otherwise.
JSON-P callback: (as 'jsonp' param, optional) (blank for none)
