I suggest you use cURL (

Here's how I use cURL to send an MMS:

bool HTTPPost(LPCSTR PhoneNum, LPCSTR Filename)
bool rc = false;

// Submit MMS using libcURL via HTTP Post
CURL *curl;

curl = curl_easy_init();
if (curl) {
int curl_rc = 0;

// Don't set verbose as NowSMS will take the response and send it back to the mobile phone user
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 0);

/* First set the URL that is about to receive our POST. This URL can
just as well be a https:// URL if that is what should receive the
data. */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");

/* Now specify the POST data */
struct curl_httppost *post=NULL;
struct curl_httppost *last=NULL;

curl_formadd(&post, &last,

curl_formadd(&post, &last,

/* Set the form info */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HTTPPOST, post);

/* post away! */
curl_rc = curl_easy_perform(curl);

/* free the post data again */

/* always cleanup */

rc = true;

return rc;

It should be quite easy to modify it to send SMS.
