Actually, can't you already password-protect posts?  in which case, you're 
just sending out the 'password' to the post.  You could do that right now, 
no further work.

If you want to be a bit more secure, you'd generate a password based on the 
'real' post password plus the person's phone #/sms address, and then have 
them enter their phone # and the generated password to validate/view.

If you want to be even more secure, you'd have people register on your site, 
register their sms phone number, and potentially generate a 'private 
password' that's only good for that person for that post, storing it in 
their user metadata (so the 'purchase' is recorded in their account).  Then 
they never have to enter a thing, just by logging into their account they 
can see anything they 'unlocked'.

| Why make this so hard?
| 1. you need to have a process that checks and verifies sms messages.
| 2. if message passes constraints send access code
| This should all be done without touching the WP code.
| 3. ability to toggle posts based off of access code.
| This is the only hook that you need.
| This is fairly straightforward I would recommend checking into the Captcha
| plugins as the functionality is essentially the same.
