Most cell phone providers offer an e-mail to SMS gateway. For example if your phone number was 0123456789, you may be able to receive an SMS by sending an e-mail to  0123456789@cellphone.providers.gateway.com. You will need to have the user's gateway e-mail address, though.

I guess I should have mentioned that once you have that e-mail address, it's pretty trivial to send e-mail using PHP. The other option of course is to purchase access to an SMS gateway and use their API to send text messages.

See the mail() function to send e-mail.


Theres is no way to have your site start an SMS message on the cell phone that is browsing your site.  You would need to send it through your own SMS or e-mail gateway.
