Hi Ohannis,

We don't offer a complete "portal" solution. And I don't really have any tutorial to point you to for more information.

There are a lot of pieces that you need to put together for such an offering.

Probably the most crucial piece is a connection to an SMS service provider. You'll need to evaluate the various pricing options for SMS service providers in your target region.

The Now SMS/MMS Gateway is a middleware tool for SMS and MMS, which among other features, can be used to manage connections to one or more service providers; or to manage receiving SMS or MMS messages; or to perform message formatting for advanced message types such as WAP push, MMS, etc.

You might end up finding NowSMS as a useful tool as part of the middleware for your site.
