Hello every body,
I have gone through a lot of discussion on this topic and havent succeeded in sending an SMS from my computer. I would like to have a clarification in this regard.Is it a must that we should have a mobile phone which is connected to the pc while sending the SMS.If it is possible to send SMS without connecting a mobile phone please drop your ideas.

this link sells an SMS broad cast server but requires a mobile ph. be connected to make it work. However Yahoo messenger and some softwares like SMSPop are there which do not require a mobile phone to be connected to the pc.

I believe SimpleWire.com provides an API for sending SMS messages from a PC with Internet access. Of course the service costs something, but I've understood that it's relatively popular for small traffic application.

I downloaded and used the simplewire sdk it compiles and runs fine but the sms is not delivered to my mobile phone can any one please detail on the steps you have to do to make it send an sms to a number which i can specify?. How do i check the status of the message sent? (whether it is delivered or still in queue) i went through the docs but could not find the corresponding method for it

You can create and run the mobile (SMS) service. The system has a web interface with public access. Integration with Web application is supported.
