Does anyone know of any free sms gateways available that can send to Austalia? i dont really mind if there is advertising, but it needs to be 100% free. If anyone does, how woul dyou suggest i mae a VB program tha twould send to this service? i used to have this program that a friend made for me in VB. u just typed in the message and the number, and it sent it. I formatted my computer and have lost that program. i was hoping to make my own... any suggestions how?

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?
