I am in IT and I monitor a number of systems. When things are out of whack, my monitoring system sends out an alert email. If the internet connection or firewall is the device that is down, obviously the emails don't go out. I would like to be able to hook up a phone to my monitoring system and (ideally through an adb shell) cause an SMS text message to go out via the cell network, bypassing the firewall/internet completely. Does anyone know of a way to do this?
