    Yes, implementing SMS is a piece of cake, you could send a message to a
    gateway that sends a message to the phone, or you could just connect a phone
    to the printer. The last option sounds primitive, but it would allow the
    printer software to receive coded SMS messages, perhaps from the operator to
    start or shutdown the machine.

    It is just that the punter who submits the job needs a way of saying "I want
    an SMS when the job has finished, and here is my SMS number" You could do
    it with a sort of conventional email address like +3275736639@sms but the
    submitter would not know whether SMS was really supported and what the
    convention was unless he or she asked the printer site first.
