    As far as I know, you do need to use a Gateway to send SMS messages. As you mentioned this really does not have anything to do with the Mobile Internet Toolkit which is the focus of the discussion here. A quick search on Google turned up the following: SMS Text messaging for ASP.NET http://www.aspnetpro.com/thirdparty/showfile.asp?FileID=1775 I believe there were also a couple of articles on Wrox's ASPToday site that looked at integrating asp.net with SMS. But as far as I know, all of them used gateways. - Anil

    You can do this in one of three ways: 1. you have a GSM modem (or equevilant in non GSM networks) , GSM modems normally accept AT commands on the serial port, which is not hard to learn or develop on any languages.. 2. You buy an SMPP link from any service provider and write an implimentation for the SMPP protocol which is somehow like the TCP protocol (its actually built on top of it), acquiring a link is not a cheap solution and providers normally provide this only for corporates with huge consumption of SMS messages. 3. Buy SMS qoutation from a web-based provider (I may suggest BulkSMS.com) that enables you from writing a software implementation to send special requests for sending SMS messages over the internet... If you are developing an application to send a certain limited number of SMS messages per day (frequency less than 1 message per 20 seconds) then GSM modem will be sufficient and inexpensive. If you are developing an application to send bulk messages (thousands per day) the you might want to consider any of the later 2 options.

    Hi aabuserrieh, Our HO is in Dubai, UAE. There the service provider is giving SMPP support for their SMS Gateway. How to use SMPP (i found some java api from logica) from ASP.NET ? Yours, Sankar.B

    Well SMPP is a Protocl that you can fine allot of documentatioin about, but you will have to send these HTTP-Like as requests to the SMPP server after formating the request string, I am not sure how feasible is it from ASP .Net since you will have to write low-level programming that includes socket interaction. In our company we use COM objects written in C++ to communicate with SMPP. You might as well consider buying our company's product and save yourself the development efforts ;)

    Hello to all. I have pretty much the same problem and I'm focusing to using the solution with the gsm modem. i guess any mobile phone can be used as such. My question is where do I find more info about interacting with such a device. What I need is to retrieve the sms FROM the mobile phone then transform it to an sql query and update my database. But my problem for now is how to retrieve the message from the mobile phone... Any links or articles or tutorials about it? PS this is I guess a good solution for my needs I approximatelly assess I'll be receiving 3000 messages within three days periods but not actually sending any unless I get an error during the reading of the data (incorrect syntax of the data from the sender) In that case I want to be able to send an sms to ask for resubmission of the data. Another issue is that after retrieving the sms I'll have to delete it. I hope that is possible too. Anyway any info or links would be appreciated Thanks in advance Dimitris from Greece!(Therefore excuse my bad English!!!)

    Ok, SMSconnect is carrier-grade application that runs MSMQ and Windows service and talks to telecommunication providers' SMSC via EMPP. No talk to GSM modem at all.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Here are some questions I have before I get started.

    1. I understand that this can be implemented using a gateway provider. Which are the recommended gateway providers that are reliable for sending SMS in US?

    2. If I use the SMPP component from devshock, do I still need a gateway provider? How could I get a SMPP account?

    3. I've heard of people implementing this using a modem. Any information on that will be really helpful.

    My web application would need to track if a SMS was sent successfully and the time it was delivered. Which of the above options would let me track this information?

  • User-1419011324 posted

     Yea u are correct that u should use gateway provider and with devshock u need to use SMPP account that is provide by gateway provider. It is very gud and simple way to do what u want rather then going to modem. You can achieve through modem also  but better is  devshock.

    Basically you require a SMS Gateway through which you have to send your message, which would be a paid service to which you have to subscribe. My suggestion would be to create a common interface for mail, text messages etc which would contain methods like "SendMessage","ConstructMessage" etc and  implement those. Usually your application would require to consume a webservice provided by the gateway service, but I believe there are some other methods in practice as well. The following links might be of help to you -


    http://www.gotocode.com/art.asp?art_id=66  - contains the basic code structure

    You can download this free component and check it out (not sure about licensing terms, so read their terms if you want to use it commercially) - http://www.intellisoftware.co.uk/sms-gateway/dotnet-component/
