SMProLib tool - sending SMS via Java. You also can receive messages.

You need a phone that supports Wireless Messaging API (WMA) as part of the J2ME implementation. Both WMA 1.1 and 2.0 are out.

You  can find some API's of few model of phones

This code is from a Motorola SDK document for WMA 2.0:

//To send SMS
try {
String addr = “sms://+358401234567”;
MessageConnection conn = (MessageConnection) Connector.open(addr);
TextMessage msg =
msg.setPayloadText(“Hello World!”);
} catch (Exception e) {

//To receive SMS
try {
String addr = “sms://:5432”;
MessageConnection conn = (MessageConnection) Connector.open(addr);
Message msg = null;
while (someExitCondition) {
// wait for incoming messages
msg = conn.receive();
// received a message
if (msg instanceof TextMessage) {
TextMessage tmsg = (TextMessage)msg;
String receivedText = tmsg.getPayloadText();
// respond with the same text with “Received:”
// inserted in the beginning
tmsg.setPayloadText(“Received:” + receivedText);
// Note that the recipient address in the message is
// already correct as we are reusing the same object
} else {
// Received message was not a text message, but e.g. binary
} catch (Exception e) {

An alternative solution to using a phone is to use an SMS server to send a message. It is actually *very easy* once you have access to the SMS server since they are several protocols you could use such as HTTP, WML, TCP/IP, SMTP and probably several others (it depends on the sms server vendor). Once you register with an SMS vendor they provide you with a username/password pair which you should use in all your requests to the server in order to identify them.

I have done it twice in the past and I have used clickatell: http://www.clickatell.com/ for this, very easy to use and very low prices (depends on the volume of SMS you want to send though).

   Which Wireless Tool Kit do you have?????? If you have WTK 2.3 there is a project example for that. I think there is one in WTK 2.2 as well.
Go to src folder in that project and see the code.

Hope that helps.
