Send and Receive SMS messages using ASP.NET

Hi All,

I have just Googled the title of my question and have been bombarded with lots of results.. a little bit too much info overload at this stage.

I have a potential ASP.NET web app project that will need SMS capability including the following:

- Send SMS messages to customers via a web interface

- Receive SMS orders into ASP.NET app which will then store them in a SQL Server database after validating

- The customer will have the option of sending an SMS message to a variety of short numbers which ultimately will be stored within my web app as different job types/departments.

Eek, where do I start and what do I need??

As always, many thanks for you time and expertise.

A simplistic option is to use the email gateways that most providers support, for example.  1235551212@messaging.sprintpcs.com.  However because of number portability, you have to know the carrier ahead of time.  Some of the third party providers that mamtha suggested also include an email api (1235551212@3rdpartysms.co).
