    Okay, let's go to other round then.

    "You can send SMS and MMS through some HTTP-based messaging gateway. You cannot use ASP.NET to make visitor's device send SMS or MMS. For HTTP-based messaging gateways check out services like http://www.mxtelecom.com/ and http://www.smsdriver.com/. There are also many other services that you can use.

    HTTP-based messaging gateways have their own API-s you can use and this far I've seen no complex ones. I got SMS sending work over MxTelecom services after two minutes, so it should be easy enough also for beginners.

    Once you get API documentation from gateway provider you can write your code to send requests and process responses. Use WebRequest/HttpWebRequest and WebResponse/HttpWebResponse classes from System.Net namespace."

    You cannot write a web-based system that makes user device send SMS/MMS out from device.

    No, exactly the same.

    Every SMS HTTP gateway provider has their own API. Just choose provider and read their technical materialis. If your provider doesn't have support for SOAP and you want make your systems using SOAP - no problem. You can write web services and these web services are just functioning as wrapper. Your systems will use these web services and they know nothing what's going on behind the calls. Once your SMS gateway service provider offers SOAP based interface you need only to change your own web services. Your applications etc work as before as they don't know what happend behind curtains.

    Sure, ask if you have questions. I'm glad if I can help you.

    You don't need code examples this much I think. Basically you need to know how to format your HTTP requests to SMS gateway if you are using usual HTTP requests. Some SMS gateway providers have SOAP webservices too. If your service provider has SOAP services available then I strongly recommend to use these if they work perfectly.
