    In fact there are other SMS terminals available really cheap now, like the Siemens M20 which I used recently. It is easy to control via the MSComm control. You simply send AT commands via the serial port and receive and interpret the answers from the terminal. Although I used it only for sending an SMS to the operator when an error in the program flow stopped the machine, it is as well able to receive messages, too.

    Another way of sending SMS would be to make use of one of the available web services.
    Some services allow to send them a special formatted email which contains the sms text and the phone number of the receipient and they will forward the sms to him.
    These services can be easily used with a simple SMTP email control, but they are not free.

    Re: Sending SMS using VB6 code

    The easiest way is to use EMAIL (to a service provider)

    eg, You send an email to an address like 61403554466@interfax.net
    with the body of the email holding the SMS Message

    61403554466 is the Mobile Phone Number

    interfax.net is a provider which receives your email and sends out the SMS, and charges you a small fee for doing so

    Various Providers exist around the world
    You can also use the same providers to send out FAXES in a similar manner

    Try

    mBox.com.au
    Interfax.net
    eFax.com
