Actually you cant sent sms anywhere in the world until they are tied up with top companies.
Mostly you cannot send sms in gulf countries as there is king rule and a lot of restriction for foreign mobile operators.

Viettel? A company in Vietnam if I get this right? As far as I know, they do not support receiving sms from international operators (in my experience all Optus, 3 and Vodafone network in Australia can't sms to Viettel subscribers), so basically you have to find a local sms carrier (a service similar to located in Vietnam) to sms to Viettel. I don't know any free services like that, but other carriers like Mobilefone, Sfone and Vinafone (??) do allow user to sms via their website for a small fee (0.5c per msg). From then you can sms to Viettel.

Other than that, supports a wide range of carrier. In some countries like the US, Canada and UK you can use a few popular chat clients (ICQ, YIM) to sms directly to mobile. A google search with keyword "free sms" will yeild quite a number of results, but if you target a specific carrier, you have to find it for yourself.
