For a prospect we had some months ago I played with Twilio
We had to send SMSs and make calls with "options".

I performed a few tests using its REST interface with Curl, and it is
pretty straightforward. It wouldn't be hard to implement a REST client
directly in Pharo, as we already have for services like Mandrill.
