HTTP GET/POST

I need to code a http post to request something from a remote server and receive a response. I simply want to integrate sms functioality into my website. I have an account set up with the company at the following website and all I want to do is plug into their sms functionality.

This is the website
http://www.smsglobal.com.au/api/http.html
Can anyone give me some clues on where to start? I am developing using VB and visual Studio 2008,

I just want an ascx and aspx that would connect to the above service.

HTTPWebRequest Example:

Its not the complete code but it will give you some idea (and its not tested code):

Dim smsRequest as HttpWebRequest = WebRequest.Create("http://www.smsglobal.com.au.http-api.php?action=ACTION&user=USERNAME&
password=SECRET&from=FROMNUMBER&to=61409317436&text=Hello%20world");
smsRequest.Method = "POST"
smsRequest.ContentType="application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
Dim st as Stream = smsRequest.GetRequestStream()
' Send data with st and close st

Use WebRequest or WebResponse.

      Dim objWebRequest As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(strURL)
      Dim objWebResponse As WebResponse = objWebRequest.GetResponse()
      Dim objStream As Stream = objWebResponse.GetResponseStream()
      Dim objStreamReader As StreamReader = New StreamReader(objStream)
      Dim strHTML As String = objStreamReader.ReadToEnd
