A lot of people keep asking me the same questions repeatedly. So I decided I will compile an FAQ, and will keep updating it as I find time.
Why Way2SMS and 160by2 is not working anymore? : Way2sms, and 160by2 has blocked all IP addresses which are used to send bulk sms. So, even the IP of my server is blocked. However, for dedicated api users, Way2SMS and 160by2 is working.
What is Way2SMS Captcha / Error Code -7? : As I said, Way2SMS, and 160by2 has blocked requests from my server, and is placing a Captcha to send sms. Error code -7 means there is a Captcha which cannot be bypassed. However, for dedicated api users, way2sms and 160by2 is working.
Why group sms is not working for Way2SMS and 160By2? : Way2sms has a limit of 1 sms per 3 seconds. 160by2 has a limit of 1 sms per 10 seconds. Therefore, group sms with these providers will not be possible.
Why don't you make api code open source / give it for free? : I don't earn anything from this api service. And hence I will not give away the code too.
How to send sms? : Please refer How to use this API Page!
The sample code you provided is not working. Where to get working code? : Sample code is working 110%. Please make sure your code is working, and you have already google-ed for the error that you are receiving.
Do you store usernames and passwords of our accounts? : I would like to, but frankly your usernames and passwords are nothing more than useless to me, and hence I do not store it.
What is difference between dedicated service and free service? : People using this API on Dedicated Service, receive faster updates, and less downtime. Even Way2sms works for dedicated service users. If you have a website / app sending 1000's of sms every day, dedicated service is preferred.
How can we use dedicated service? Contact me with following details: Number of sms sent per day, Application name and type (android / iphone etc). If your application sends less than 3000 sms per day, please use free API only.
Can we place Ad's on your site? : I will be more than happy. Contact me for more details.
I am getting a lot of requests saying way2sms and 160by2 are not working. I have already told plenty of times that it will not work anymore since they have blocked IP’s of all servers sending bulk requests. Hence I am writing this post today to announce that I am officially dropping support for these 2 providers. Also, there are plenty of junk providers who have either shutdown or do not work anymore. I am removing support for those providers too.
Officially supported providers on Ubaid.tk free servers will be :
Officially supported providers on Ubaid.tk dedicated servers will be :
Way2sms (Yes! Way2sms and 160by2 work on dedicated servers)
All other providers will be removed soon, and requests sent to the server with providers other than these will return -11 : Unsupported Provider.
Happy new year to all the users of this API. We have seen lots of ups and downs on this service, and see that a lot of people are getting affected due to this. This new year, we plan to launch a dedicated service to users who would like to enjoy uninterrupted services, running on best quality servers without any downtime. If your application or website wants to own a peice of this dedicated server, contact me and I will let you know the best price!
Happy new year once again!
Hi folks, its high time we need an extension for Google Chrome and Internet Explorer! I invite all users of this API to join hands, and release an extension for all browsers! You create the extension, I will promote it. It can be from anything simpler to complex with hundreds of features. It will be used not only by you, but hundreds of other users as well. Think over it, and submit your extension.
