Phone Ring on Notification

Is it possible to ring my phone as a notification option should a certain condition be met? I am already getting emails, and that works fine for the most part. The issue is, that when I'm sleeping, I don't really listen to the email notification beep on my phone, but I would answer my phone if it were to ring.....

I am not looking for the SMS option. I want to know if PRTG can actually call my cellphone where it will continue to ring and ring until I get my lazy but out of bed in the middle of the night...

Hi,
I'm afraid this is not possible from stock. Some SMS gateways offer Text-to-Speech functions but it is not officially supported.
Best regards

Hi,

I do not know what country you are in but in the UK we can send a text message to a land line number. This then causes the phone to ring until answered at which point it will read out the text message. It will also retry several times.

Regards

Mike
