There is some more detailed information about AT&T and their TAP interface discontinuation here:

It does say that EFI Unimobile Mobile Messaging is offering a TAP interface that can be used with AT&T. However, their monthly plans start at $1000 per month. Not what I would consider a reasonable replacement to the free TAP interface that other providers offer.

I realize this issue started months ago, but I thought I'd share what we found out.

More than one of our carriers stopped working when AT&T disconnected TAP. AT&T was unhelpful, of course. Cincinnati Bell Wireless, on the other hand, was able to come up with an alternative phone number than goes into THEIR Tap interface.... which transmits out over the AT&T network. A quick test confirmed it - we're able to send to all AT&T recipients again using their TAP interface.

OK, I'm not sure it's 'ethical' to piggyback through their interface, but it works...

Do you want to share the TAP number with the others here?

It would be great if you did, but we would understand if you don't want to take the chance on ruining a good thing.
