How did you do this? was it a paid service or is there another way? I'm the kind of sysadmin that would do this for everything :D

It was just a bit of shell scripting that triggered an email being sent. Most carriers I know of link an email account with the phone number they give out. Sending an email to my_number@mycarrier.com or some such will cc the email as an sms message to my_number. You can do the reverse as well and control a bot by sending commands through sms. It really is very handy. :)
