Rule that sends data via a querystring to a remote script

Hi, I need to send a text message to customers when their order status updates to "Ready for Pickup" and the SMS provider has given me a page that I just need to load with the appropriate querystring. I have a rule that correctly determines when this condition occurs but how can I cause this page to load when this happens? I've tried the page redirect action but that doesn't seem to do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This module has code that was working a few months ago to send an SMS message with rules and a telephony API


That being said, you may be able to use that code and pull what you need to make your form submit easy.

Also, I took a look at the redirect action, and it appears to support exactly what you need (absolute urls with optional ? queries attached). If the redirect isn't working, then I suggest you file bug report with rules.
