Voice, SMS & MMS for developers.

Welcome to our developer friendly API service! :-)

We make it easy for you to add custom telephony features that are perfectly suited to the way you do things – because sometimes ‘off the shelf’ just doesn't cut it.

You can use 46elks for:

  • Sending SMS text messages
  • Receiving SMS to your applications
  • Sending & receiving MMS pictures
  • Controlling incoming and outgoing telephone calls with code
  • Building interactive voice sessions
  • And other telephony features.
