  • SL will not let you send an SMS. Perhaps a OOB SL app with full trust (and if hardware is present on client side).

    But a "normal" SL App will not allow for such things. You must create a Web Service on server side that will do the job and call this service from the SL app.

    Now, on server side "how to send a SMS ?" ... I suppose the server must be connected to either an external service offering this function or to a real phone (even several ones) with a special lib to access the phones and sens SMS.
