We are gonna create a friends association with all our friends in the area. There would be more than 80, so we need a quick way of passing details, like get together times, bike riding times, etc. I am having an idea of creating a SMS sending program, so I can send the messages to all at once. However, I have no idea about how to create this. My question is, what should I know to do this kind of thing? Please help
Are you better than me? Then please show me my mistakes..

This is another example of people asking "How do I do X?" without asking "What would the world be like if everybody could do X?"
Now of course people wouldn't normally extrapolate their question like that, when they just want to get something done. But let's ask that question... what would the world be like if everybody with a computer could send free SMS messages to every phone number they could get their hands on?
But you will have noticed that you aren't overwhelmed by the volume of SMS spam showing up on your phone. From which it follows that it isn't easy to send free SMS messages to any old list of phone numbers.
Most phone carriers allows emails to be sent to phone numbers as a text message. Compile everyone's number and phone carrier into a list then create an email group using their numbers and the carriers email extension. Below is a link to show you how to do this and common carrier extensions.
