Reload SMART number through text

For those of you who are using a 3G/LTE modem to connect to the internet, it might be a hassle to take out the sim, plug it in your phone to reload it using one of the load cards, since eload might not be available to you in the middle of the night and if you are anything like me, you'd be stocking a couple of them anyway.
