Not really slow, but this is not really related to J2ME, more JSP and Servlets!
Usually, the web host would have a service agreement with a mobile phone network service provider to allow them to use their SMS gateway. The web host would most probably have written server side coding (Servlet/CGI) to extract the data(target number and message) from the fields on the page using a doPost()method. This data will be sent to the Service Provider in the form of an email. It is the service provider who will then take this data and execute the sending of the SMS.

- how do I move this topic to the JSP and Servlets area?
