// Send an SMS using Twilio's REST API and PHP <?php $sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/console $token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/console $client = new Twilio\Rest\Client($sid, $token); $message = $client->messages->create( '8881231234', // Text this number array( 'from' => '9991231234', // From a valid Twilio number 'body' => 'Hello from Twilio!' ) ); print $message->sid;
Make a Call
<?php $sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/console $token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/console $client = new Twilio\Rest\Client($sid, $token); // Read TwiML at this URL when a call connects (hold music) $call = $client->calls->create( '8881231234', // Call this number '9991231234', // From a valid Twilio number array( 'url' => 'https://twimlets.com/holdmusic?Bucket=com.twilio.music.ambient' ) );
To control phone calls, your application needs to output
Twilio\Twiml to easily create such responses.
<?php $response = new Twilio\Twiml(); $response->say('Hello'); $response->play('https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3', array("loop" => 5)); print $response;
That will output XML that looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Response> <Say>Hello</Say> <Play loop="5">https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3</Play> <Response>
