 You need nothing more than basic knowledge of Java (TCP/IP and Sockets and depending on the provider either knowledge of HTTP and/or SMTP) and an SMS server.

  The SMS server (known also as SMSC - Short Message Service Centre) is used to send, receive and, when a mobile device is switched off, store the messages. Usually these servers work on top of TCP/IP but you can send sms messages using either SMTP or HTTP as well. This depends on the protocol each SMS server is using of course.

  There are several providers that offer SMS services, you can do a search on google with the keywords "SMS providers" and you will find loads. Some of them are quite expensive but you can find prices even down to 2.4p a message (even cheaper if you really look hard maybe).

  Usually when you sign up with a provider they give you a username and a password that you use to connect and then you send the data to the server. The format of the data depends on the format expected by each SMS server. When you sign up they always give you documentation explaining how to do it.

  The second way of doing it is to have your mobile phone connected to your pc (by means of some external hardware/wire/something like this) and use the actual phone to do the job. This is usually more expensive.

  Hope it helps.
