I understand the differences between SMS and email. I found my answer , yes using the cellular carriers SMS gateway facilitates what I am trying to do. Just create an email message in outlook and use the recipient tel # plus the domain of the cellular carrier and you are done. The examples are below

Alltel                             [insert 10-digit number]@message.alltel.com       [insert 10-digit number]@mms.alltelwireless.com
