What handset/carrier are you using?

The easiest way to send an SMS from a PC is to use carrier specific e-mail gateways. For example an e-mail to 8005551212@messaging.sprintpcs.com will be translated into a text message to 800-555-1212.

You might also consider a service like Teleflip but read these caveats:

If you absolutely have to send messages through a real phone, then you need to get one that supports the SMS AT commands. You'll also need a serial data cable for it. You might have a problem writing to a serial port from a Java program, but I suppose it depends on the JVM you are using.
