Twilio is by far the most complete solution for SMS, its API is extremely well structured. And its integration with rails is pretty straight forward.

We use Twilio extensively for voice call routing, for texting. We, in fact, use it for MMS messaging as of recently...We do number masking. So the personal shopper never has your actual number, you call the Twilio number and it routes you intelligently to the customer. And vice-versa.

Twilio is a service I have experimented with, and given a project with SMS requirements I would choose Twilio to support that.
