    Heres another simple solution to send text:

    Set Variable [$sms_account_ID ; (Twilio account ID)]
    Set Variable [$sms_token ; (Twilio auth token)]
    Set Variable [$from ; (Twilio phone number)]
    Set Variable [$phone_number ; (number being sent to)]
    Set Variable [$message ; (whatever you want it to say)]
    Insert from URL [ Select; No Dialog; (Your field) ; “httpspost://” & $sms_accountID & “:” & $sms_token & “@api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/” & $sms_accountID & “/Messages.json?To=+1” & $phone_number & “&From=+1” & $from & “&Body=” & $message
