I'm looking for a way to send SMS from a website or java app, but haven't been able to find anything other than companies that offer pay options. Is there a way to do this? What protocol do i need? Can i just write a serversocket and handle the commands like in email, or are there no real standards across all providers? If I can, where can I find info on that and the port number, etc? Also, how do i figure out which provider their number is at?

Thanks, unfortunately that's still not a full answer. I can set up my own SMS gateway (with kannel) but then it appears I need an SMSC to be able to send SMS to any phones!

Are there any free SMSC's out there? What's the real solution? I'm looking to set this up on a server without a modem and not connected to a cell phone. Is there such an option?
