Send basic contact info via SMS from a website

If you go to the following site and scroll down you will see a link "Send to Phone". If you click that it allows you to enter a cell number and some basic info about the business is sent.

Does anyone know how to do something like this, preferably free?

Thanks!

There is no way to solve this without a provider.
You can find the code free, but you will need a service to send and deliver the sms.

Here are two examples, depending on your needs:

Almost every cell phones SMS message is actually an email address.  How this site is determining which one to use is unclear.  For example most T-Mobile phones are the cell phone number @tmomail.net.  ie: Phone number (555) 123-4567 would be  555123467@tmomail.net

Hope this helps.

I see what you mean...it looks like the site is hosted by AT&T, perhaps this is a service they offer there web hosting customers?
