I recently discovered that SQL Express is also a good tool to add SMS functionality to an application. It can be configured as an SQL to SMS gateway and can be used by any application to send and receive SMS messages. For example ifÃÂ I writes an application in C# and would like to send SMS text messages to a mobile phone,ÃÂ I can put the destination phone number and the SMS message text into an SQL Express database table. After this, the SMS text messages will be automatically sent to the mobile phone. Incoming SMS text messages will be automatically saved in another SQL Express database table. A good example of such a setup can be found at http://www.ozekisms.com/index.php?owpn=164. In this example an external tool is used, that can operate a mobile phone attached to the computer with a phone to PC data cable. This mobile phoneÃÂ will actually send and receive the SMS messages.
The problemÃÂ with this is that it is not free.ÃÂ Is there any similar solution that comes free?
