Query on SMS

By kotnibalaji ·
Dear Sir,

We want to be able to send SMS messages from our application. We do not want to use a mobile phone connected to our PC. Is there any Delphi component that does this?
If not could you suggest a link to us where we could get the source code that does this? We want to have detailed information on this.

As far as I am aware there is no purely software way of directly sending SMS messages. However what you can do is use an SMTP to SMS gateway (you have to register and they charge on per message basis but the cost of a "roll your own" SMS solution equates to about 100,000 messages and you still have to pay on a per message basis). To use these services you send an appropriately formatted e-mail to an address like <phone number>@<Gateway domain> and the message arrives on the phone. Here are web addresses for a couple of SMTP to SMS gateways
