Da_Samon there are no free SMS gateways left anymore....I have tried so many myself to send SMS in many countries but have failed in the past.

If you know the mail server of the cell provider to whom you intend to send the SMS use the component in this link:

In VB a SMS is send like an email rather than pure SMS.

Did you get hold of a free SMS gateway? Did you find a better way to send SMS? If not then why Grade C?
