VB.NET code for Sending SMS using Android Phone without 3rd party gateway RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for a way of sending text messages (sms) from a application without having to connect to the internet and without using a third part gateway. Is it possible to do that by connecting my android phone directly to the PC? Once connected, the application should send messages from a database directly through the connected phone just in a similar way as though the messages were being sent directly from the phone.

  • Hello,

    The .NET Framework does not have native functionality for this so it's not possible as askd. Best thought on this is to use AT-commands (see the following about AT commands.).

    Otherwise you would need third party libraries.
