Italian SMS spot gateway down

The data center where the Italian sms spot gateway is installed is actually isolated from Internet so it won’t be able to publish the spots.
I expect the connection to be restored on Monday morning.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I’m glad to confirm that the gateway is online again.

What is the local SMS Gateway phone number in Italy? Is the number the same across all of Europe, or is it different for most European countries?

The number is +39 366 2884598 and refer to an italian carrier.
There are similar gateways in other EU countries with their own numbers.

It depends on which service you are using. There are several with different numbers and syntax.
