    How to send sms from vb6 to a phone using the internet

    Hello everyone. Does any one seem to have an idea of how to send a text (SMS) message to a cell phone from vb6 code only using the internet?
    I will be very grateful for you contributions. Thank you.

    I don't think most carriers' SMS networks are open, i.e. they don't have free SMS gateways. Many accept SMTP emails addressed properly though I think.

    But I can't imagine anything allowing addressing simply by phone number. Perhaps I'm wrong.

    hey thanx Dilettante. I guess you are right. I've done a lot of net surfing and research just trying to find the any, but I guess as you had said, they don't have free SMS gateways. Its true.

    You could have your application automatically fill out forms on one of the countless free SMS providers out there, assuming you don't need replies. If you do, Google is the only one I'm aware of that lets you receive replies free too. That's about it for free options.
