Mucho nos tememos que esta función está diseñada para países, como Estados Unidos, donde el envío de SMS está aún a la orden del día, y no para países como España donde WhatsApp es la aplicación de comunicación por defecto y los SMS sólo los usamos para conectarnos a las cuentas de nuestros bancos y demás servicios on-line.
