Are you using a Nokia mobile?  If so, I have used this product successfully before: http://www.oxygensoftware.com/en/products/activex/mobile/Default.asp?page=sms

If you are sending a large volume of messages then it might be more cost-effective to use an SMS gateway.  For this, you don't need a phone attached to the PC - everything is done via the internet.  Take a look at http://www.pswin.com/portal/tabID__515/DesktopDefault.aspx

Hi Kariz

With the methods that I have suggested you will still have to write code.  The first is an ActiveX control that you can use the properties and methods of to interface with the mobile phone.  The second approach uses .NET classes to send requests to the gateway.  Sample code for both approaches is available on the respective web sites.  Both will work with VB.
