Hi to all in the forum!
I've been thinking how could i send a sms from my mobile to a database maybe sql server.
I did some research and found that maybe using at commands could be an option but still don't know what other options exist.
Has someone done something like this?

You probably aren't getting answers because the question doesn't make sense. You wouldn't "send an SMS to a database". You might send an SMS to something which puts it into a database. (I can't imagine why you would want to do that, but you could certainly do it.)

So first you would have to send the text. Then you would have to have something receive the text. Then that something would proceed to add it to the database.

Which of these tasks do you have a question about?

Yeah that is what i have in mind and i thought it was understood that way but it doesn't matter.

So what would i need to receive the text? It can be done with php,asp.net,java but do i need something extra?

Thanks

You would probably want a servlet or some other type of listener to receive the messages.
