Zeep Mobile: SMS with Ads

I recently started working on integrating Zeep Mobile into an app. The documentation provided by Zeep is not the best or accurate but they do provide source code examples in…python, pearl, java. I asked about c# and the response was “i’m sure someone has posted something, search the group”. Well, no-one posted a solution so I went about coding and iteratively developing the code to send an SMS. Running into an issue, I even tried StackOverflow but that wasn’t too helpful either.

Well I finally managed to get my code working. Here is some sample c# code to send messages using the zeep framework.

I hope you all looking for c# code find this helpful.
