SMS send

An action block that sends an SMS without user interaction.

The fiber will pause until the message has been sent.

A message longer than 160 characters will be split into multiple parts, each sent as a separate SMS. Set multipart limit to truncate the message to a maximum number of parts.

If this block cause an NullPointerException failure, try enabling the SMS send workaround option in settings.

Safety! Automate limits the rate of SMS sent with this block. The rate can be configured in settings.
