Hi All,
I have installed J2ME and have tested a sample program with a Simulator.
How can i send SMS to a mobile phone in realtime using the toolkit?.

Cheers

You can't do that: the Wireless Toolkit can't send or receive real SMS messages. To do that, its emulators would have to either interface to some Internet SMS-sending service (which usually costs money), or interface to a real phone e.g. over a serial cable. Instead, the Wireless Toolkit's emulators 'cheat' by using TCP sockets to exchange simulated 'SMS messages' between different instances of the emulator.
