    Go through the details of Push Technology that can be used to send such messages. But before that probably we need a SMSC and a SMS gateway to get the process done. No SMS is directly sent to the recipient, it has got to go to SMSCenter from where it is routed to the address specified, be it email address or a phone no. Infact thing is something like this that for SMS purpose, each of the mobile phone is also associated with an email address.

    So even if we write a code that is limited to sending it to the SMSC, we can't go any further. And if we have to go any further we need a SMSC and SMS Gateway of our own.



    By the way, can you just tell what your application is? is that sending push messages or something else? May be if you can be more specific in the doubt, this would help!



    with regards

    Hello. I just got the latest info about SMS. We need to depend on a telco to provide us with the network/gateway and also a API specifications. By then, you can start program about it.

    Let me try and answer your questions.

    Do you need to receive SMS? If you need to receive SMS, you will need to host your own GSM device or modem so that people can send you SMS.

    If not, you can just use internet SMS gateways like clickatell to do the work, and post to them by HTTP, XML or email. The cost is about 6-8 cents per SMS. There are cheaper services, but not always reliable. If you need to host your own GSM device, you can use software like http://www.kannel.org (GPL Open Source) or http://visualtron.com/enterprise/sms-gateway.
