Re: how can I send sms from computer

Hey Mark 🙂 Click → http://msc.optuszoo.com.au/, either Register or Login and in Quick Links, click Send SMS via the Web. Let me know if you need a hand with anything else.

Re: how can I send sms from computer

I have followed the instructions, typed in the verification code, created a password and all I get is a "System failure" message.

Tried it with my wife's phone: different phone,  different PC - same result (or lack thereof).  What's happening?

Re: how can I send sms from computer

Registered... but all I get when I try to log in is

Caught exception in NScreens::MSC::Controller::Root->index "Can't call method "username" on an undefined value at /home/NScreens-MSC/script/../lib/NScreens/MSC/Controller/Root.pm line 59."

Re: how can I send sms from computer

I get the same error and have contacted Live Chat. They can't help and all they state is that they get the same error and will refer to tech support.

 

After so many years, I doubt it will get fixed. Consider it a non-functional Optus feature.

Re: how can I send sms from computer

http://msc.optuszoo.com.au/smssend worked for me today. Can't comment on others' experiences.

But re-reading the note "Web SMS messages can be sent to Telstra, Optus, Vodafone Three Virgin phones" makes this a pretty restricted/useless feature.

Re: how can I send sms from computer

The link you supplied is active however it is also Not Secured! 

eg http://  but should be https:// in this day and age.

SMS message sending didn't work.

Please have a look at fixing this and allowing long term postpaid customers the feature of sending 

sms/mms and imessages to others.

Thank you.

Re: how can I send sms from computer

Hi LateralNw,


That site should actually really be decommissioned, thanks for flagging this.

I've raised it with our Web team who will action this soon.
