Hi All,
I want to add sms tool in my website. With the help of that tool, user can send sms to their friends mobile. I don't know how to do it? is there any website from which i can send sms(by passing the message and the recipient)?
is it possible to add a script for that tool ?

Thanks and Regards
M Senthil Kumar

Some service providers support sending SMS through email. For an example, if the recipient number is 1112223334, there might be a service which allows you to send an email to 1112223334@<serviceprovider>.com which forwards the email to that recipient as an SMS text message.

Thanks for your reply.
is there any other way?
A month before, I saw a one website from which i can send message by passing recipient and the message. But i forgot the name of the website.

You can use some email API like JavaMail api to send emails from your web application.

One would need to sign up with an SMS provider, of course, which will cost money. So it's not quite the same as sending email.

Ulf,
Here in Sri Lanka some major SMS telecommunication providers provide this service for free of charge. However, sending an email to 1112223334@aaaaa.com doesn't work if the number 1112223334 isn't belong to 'aaaaa'

Not all telco providers offer this feature, and even those that do offer it, may not have it enabled it for any particular customer. For a general solution -which I'm assuming we're talking about, since Senthil did not mention anything that indicated otherwise- the email approach is thus not workable.

You can actually use SMSLIB software to achieve what you want, it only depends on the volume of SMS that will be going out of your site. You can set it up on your using compatible phone or thru an SMS provider. Try SMSLIB, it might work for you.

Anyhow you'll have to pay for a SMS gateway, to make a universal SMS messenger. It'll cost you per SMS.

Some web sites provide free SMS services to limited number of service providers using techniques like email2sms. Those are not universal as told before.
