receiving SMS into computer

i want to recieve sms's on my computer that i bought only for this reason.
people will send sms to vote, that means that they will send to my mobile phone sms's with short codes.
my system do not need to send back sms only to get them and procces the data...

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.
Take a look at They provide you with an incoming mobile number to receive messages to. Incoming messages can come into a mailbox (Outlook etc).

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?
it has an option to delete sms.
yeah need an special GSM modem, normal phone can't process more than 10 sms per seconds as far i know.
