How does SMS work ?

Hello,

I would like to know how does SMS work ? I have a modem 56K, could i send SMS with my modem ?

Where is the white paper / help file / documentation / protocol used to send a SMS with a modem ?

I want to create a server which will send SMS, this is my aim.

Thank you for your help

SMS: To send up to 160 characters to a mobil phone.
I think that SMS stands for Short Message Service

You need a application that can relay text to a mobil device. I use the one that comes with WinFax Pro, Which supports Pagers and SMS. You can configure this on a server to send and recieve any time you want. You can also have it relay to your device's if you have one.

All i know in the SMS world is the following,
each mobil operators have a special phone number which is dedicated to SMS.

What i want is to know the protocol involved behind this dedicated phone numbers.

Probably, it must not be complicated to send up to 160 characters. It is just question of sending few bytes over a phone line.

So, i am searching SMS protocol (code sample, help files...)

This should get you on your way to setting it up. The protocol is even there for you.
