for example i got 10,000 sms at a income limit is 200 sms
the program will need to read each sms than to procces it and delete it and read the new one...

speed is highly important...may be i will need a special GSM modem and not a regular mobile phone?

You can receive 6 to 10 SMS per minute by connecting a GSM modem or mobile phone. How many people will vote? You will need a direct access to the SMSC to handle bulk SMS. Any BAI offer at a nice tool, that supports GSM modems and/or mobile phones and direct access to SMSC as well. You can start with their SendXMS standard edition and later on move to the higher versions without to rewrite your software.
