In this tutorial, you will use the Python module SinchSMS to send an SMS message with Sinch. With the Sinch SMS API, you can build anything from a simple notification service to two-factor authentication solutions.
We have also turned this tutorial into a quick video walkthrough. Click on the image below to watch the tutorial.

pip install sinchsms
Launch the interactive console by typing
python in your command line and type the below:
import time from sinchsms import SinchSMS number = '+yourmobilenumber' message = 'I love SMS!' client = SinchSMS(your_app_key, your_app_secret) print("Sending '%s' to %s" % (message, number)) response = client.send_message(number, message) message_id = response['messageId'] response = client.check_status(message_id) while response['status'] != 'Successful': print(response['status']) time.sleep(1) response = client.check_status(message_id) print(response['status'])
If you don't want to use a module, you can find the source code for the module on GitHub: https://github.com/sinch/python-sinch-sms
In the coming months, we will start supporting incoming SMS and have a packaged solution for verifying phone numbers through SMS and calling. Stay tuned.
