My work uses a system that pages me with SMS messages. Cool? Awesome? Of course... the issue (otherwise I wouldn't be here) is that the messages come in without a phone number. So I'll get:

1410000001 admin@work.com Sbj: This is a... MSG: This is a message
1410000002 admin@work.com Sbj: This is a... MSG: This is a message
1410000003 admin@work.com Sbj: This is a... MSG: This is a message
1410000004 admin@work.com Sbj: This is a... MSG: This is a message
1410000005 admin@work.com Sbj: This is a... MSG: This is a message
...
1410000756 admin@work.com Sbj: This is a... MSG: This is a message

Each message comes across as a new user. The numbers do seem to reset periodically but I've always just deleted them.

I'd like to create a contact, and "push" these messages to that user. I wouldn't mind being able to "clean" up some of the static fluff in the message as well (Getting rid of the "header" crap and just saving what's after the "MSG: " part.

I'm a baby programmer, so I may have to break down and make this myself... but is there something out there already taht might do what I'm looking for already?

Is it possible to ask your IT department to put the phone number into the sms system? That maybe the easiest solution. –  John Siu Nov 11 '12 at 2:09
    
I haven't looked into that side of if, and it may be a solution... but it's a pretty rinkdink program, and I don't have faith in how customize-able it is. –  WernerCD Nov 11 '12 at 2:15
    
I deal will a few of them before. You don't even need to put a real number, anything within 10 digits go. It is like putting in the local fax number of your fax machine. –  John Siu Nov 11 '12 at 2:24
    
Do they always start with admin@work.com? If so, I might have a solution. –  Izzy Dec 24 '12 at 10:58
    
The layout of all of them is the same. Haven't seen anything customization in the sending program, so I was tinkering with the SDK to build a custom app to regex->user them. Just haven't gotten far at all lol –  WernerCD Dec 24 '12 at 21:50
