I need some help with sending a free text message from a vb.net application. I have been thinking of various ways to send a free text message from a windows based application.
I wanted the application to send me an error when the connection to one of the servers in my work drops.
The following are a few ideas I had but I was needing some further help / advise / code examples with moving forward.
1. My first thought was being able to connect to a website like o2 in the same way you would like a smtp email where I could specify the receipt(mobile number) . Dont know if this can be done.
2. The next suggestion I though about was being able to write an application that posts the variables to a free sms website that would send the message.
3. My last suggestion was being able to get a free component that I can integrate into the application that allows for example 10 free text messages to be sent a day.
If someone could possible assist in providing some help with a possible solution I would be grateful.
