I am doing a project on creating send and receive sms application just like a software named Mozat M2U. I just want to know what are the different ways of sending and receiving sms. When I am doing my research, some of it uses sms gateway which is some application is using is for a trial. After that, the sms gateway have to pay. Besides the gateway, some uses the AT command using the GSM modem or phone.
The project that i am doing is for my school. The project that I am doing is not only send/received one sms but in bulk. Besides that I am getting all the contact lists from the SQL Server and I am doing the application on visual studios 2005.
I am getting no where of understanding after searching the net for example. Hope that anyone would help me. I have my dateline for doing this project.
Oh ya, I have found this article which teaches me how to build sending and receiving of sms. here is the link http://faculty.ksu.edu.sa/haiderali/Papers%20and%20Articles/Ceating%20SMS-Based%20Applications%20Part-2.pdf
Besides that my friend is doing the email part but uses the SMTP server. So how to combine both the email and sms. If using the SMTP server, can i send sms? Hope that anyone would help because I am new to vb.net and also i am a slow learner.
