To send sms through a computer u have to connect it to GSM mobile . internally it is just like an ordinary cell phone but without keypad.u have 2 programme the keypad urself or through ur SMS software kit . Now if u wanna use it for a larger scale u have to contact ur local cell phone operator who will provide a gateway for u .
someone also told me that there is also a way to connect ur existing cell 2 ur computer using some cable but i have never tried it .
