Here are the Thai alphabets you can find on each key (sorry, I have missed out some tone marks as it’s hard to read on the phone but all the consonants and most of the vowels are there):
1 <space> . , – ( ) : ; 1

3 ช ซ ฌ ญ ฎ ฏ ฐ 3
4 ฑ ฒ ณ ค ต ถ ท 4

6 ฟ ภ ม ย ร ล ว 6
7 ศ ษ ส ห ฬ อ ฮ 7
8 อั อิ อี อึ อุ อู ะ 8 (ignore the อ as need to use it in order for the vowels to appear)
9 ๅ ำ เ แ โ ใ ไ ฯ 9
* * # @ $ ฿ ! ? ~ % ‘ ” ^ /
0 <some tone marks I was not sure off, sorry>, ถ ภ 0 /

Word of advice: If your mobile phone keypad could switch to Thai language ( ไทฮ), before switching to the language, you need to write down the path to select back English language. Example: go to Menu 10> select no 2: Phone Settings> select No 5: Language> Select No. 1 English. Because if not, after you type your sms message, you may not be well versed enough to read the path back to English (happened to me once and took a while for me to switch back my phone language settings to English).
