Hello! I'm developing a new project in Java and a part of it is sending SMS messages to mobile phones. I heard a couple of things about it. As I understand if you connect a mobile phone to your PC through a USB port and with the aid of a Java API communicate with the phone you can make it send messages to other phones. Is this hardware enough or do I need something else? Maybe it is somehow possible to use J2ME for doing that? Thank you very much!
Initially we started hooking a phone, in our case it was a Sony Ericsson t500.
You will have to use the java API to continously read the phone and use the same to send mesages.
Now we have tied up with SMSC's to do the sending part for us.
You will have to do alot or reading and research to do it with a phone.

Doing all that through a mobile phone connected to my PC suits my needs. I would be very grateful to you if you send me (email@example.com) a complete description of doing all that. Begining with phone installation and ending with an example code. Thank you very much!
