Rest API for customized SMS

Does the REST API support the capability to initiate an SMS message with the message text provided as a parameter to the API call rather than having been pre-defined on "Exacttarget"?
Can data extensions be used to personalize SMS texts sent by triggered sends with the REST API?
any help would be appretiated.

You'll want to use a third party service for sending SMSs from Salesforce, as it doesn't support it "natively".  I've used an AppExchange app called SMS Magic (https://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N300000024XvyEAE).  There are other apps out there as well, and some service providers may have their own developer APIs you can interact with, typically over REST.
