Description:User would like to have notifications sent out in SMS using a phone line. 

Solution:

SMS messages can be sent with several programs, one of which is yaps (Yet Another Pager Software).

Once yaps is installed and working, command definitions like these can be added and used.

define command{
        command_name    notify-by-sms
        command_line    /usr/bin/yaps -t $CONTACTPAGER$ '$NOTIFICATIONTYPE$: $HOSTNAME$: $SERVICEDESC$ is $SERVICESTATE$ ($OUTPUT$)'
        }

define command{
        command_name    host-notify-by-sms
        command_line    /usr/bin/yaps -t $CONTACTPAGER$ '$NOTIFICATIONTYPE$: $HOSTNAME$ is $HOSTSTATE$ ($OUTPUT$)'
        }

You can also use a hardware product like the SMS FoxBox to send SMS messages.
