How to Spot via SMS?

Sorry folks if this has been asked before, but searching the Reflector comes up with 1000’s of hits but none giving the answer I’m looking for!

I believe there is some way to spot via SMS, but I can neither find the number to use, or the format for the SMS that would be needed.

Can anyone point me to this info? I’m sure it’s there somewhere but can’t see it for looking.
TIA
Pete

Just spotted this thread. If you want to register, email me your mobile (cell) number and the callsign you want to use and I’ll do the rest. You can register multiple numbers if you want with the same or different callsigns.

The same applies for US users, send me your cell number and call but you send the texts to a different number. Well you could send them to the UK but that would be costly!

Either of these address will work but do the obvious to the AT

The most easy way said OE5REO. I make my selfspots with the Hungerian Number. No registration, no anything, very easy.
