Well JavaMail is pretty easy to use for basic messages here's a tutorial http://www.tutorialspoint.com/java/java_sending_email.htm

The only way I've sent sms messages is to email to the appropriate address usually looks like <phone number>@provider.net

So I either have a drop down menu to choose provider or have them email me from the phone. I'm sure there's a better way but never dug too deeply.

It's not what your program can do, it's what your users do with the program.
