In this paper, the authors implement a software based SMS switching system using GLOBACOM and MTN as network carriers. JAVA programming language with focus on socket programming will be used for the software development. The application client, which is the portion that runs on the mobile phone, uses Java macro Edition, while the server section involved in the switching uses Java Servlet. When tested on the windows 7 operating system using oracle and the SUN mobile phone simulators, there was quick response and transmission of the SMS text from one end to the other. The application was similarly simulated on the UNIX based operating system such as Linux, and Solaris. There was high level of success on the simulation showing that the results are reliable.
