How to send SMS online

Direct-to-SMS gateway


An SMS gateway typically sits between the end user who needs to send/receive SMS and a mobile network's SMSC. Such gateways provide a choice of protocols, including HTTP, SMTP, SMPP and Web services. Providers of SMS gateway services include SMS aggregators and mobile operators. SMS gateways are also available as part of messaging services such as AOL, ICQ and others.

An SMS gateway connects with (i) mobile network SMSCs in order to send/receive messages and/or (ii) other SMS gateways in order to reach mobile subscribers on multiple mobile networks. It is therefore possible that an SMS gateway has a combination of mobile network SMSC connections and connections with other SMS gateways in order to provide its services. However, there is the increasing potential for delivery problems with SMS the greater the number of SMS gateways in the delivery chain.

AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) version 5.2 and above has support for sending SMS messages for free.

ICQ also has support for sending SMS messages at no cost.

Microsoft Outlook 2007 has native support for sending SMS messages worldwide via the Outlook Mobile Service. There are also plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook that add this functionality. This uses the SMS gateways of aggregators or of mobile operators.

Skype has support for sending SMS messages. SMS sent through Skype can be configured to appear as originating from the Skype user's cellphone.

Yahoo! Messenger, accessible through a dedicated client application, or through a Web site (mail.yahoo.com) have support for SMS messages.
