Hi,

We are not an SMS service provider. So we do not offer that service, paid or otherwise.

There is some general information at the following link: http://www.nowsms.com/whatisnowsms.htm.

If you are looking for an SMS service provider, I'm not trying to dodge the question ... it's just that there are a lot of them of highly variable quality. The process of finding the right SMS service provider for your needs can be very complex, as it depends on how many messages you will be sending ... destination countries ... budget.

If you do a web search, you'll get a lot of search results on the topic, and a lot of sponsored links to evaluate.

One thing that you will find is that a lot of the providers will only deal with high volume accounts. (So don't be surprised if some of them want you to pay hefty setup fees, just to get started.)

If your needs are limited, or you are prototyping an application, a GSM modem is a good way to go. The link that I referenced above contains a general explanation of what a GSM modem is. (Many, but definitely not all, mobile phones have built-in GSM modem capabilties.)
