It depends on whether or not your phone has GSM modem support (ETSI GSM 07.05 / 3GPP TS 27.005 support).

Generally speaking, most higher end smart phones do not have this support. (Nokia S60 phones support sending SMS only, not receiving via the GSM modem interface. Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Apple iPhone do not support sending or receiving SMS via the modem interface.)

So it's hit and miss.

You can try installing the NowSMS trial, and then try adding your phone as a GSM modem. When you do this, NowSMS will go out and test the phone to see if it has the necessary support. (There are a few cases where the test works, but NowSMS can't use the modem. But this will give you a quick check.)

Thanks the above checks all proved successful, im using an n95. More specifically I would like the users of my website to be able to send texts from the site. When they hit send I would like the website to somehow let nowsms know and then send the message via my mobile. Can this be achieved with nowsms? Thanks

Keep in mind that your mobile is going to be charged for sending the texts (and its phone number is going to show up as the sender for the message recipient).

But yes, it can do this.

You wouldn't want to open up the NowSMS web interface to anyone, but you could submit messages via PHP or other scripts running on your web server.

Basically, to send a message via the NowSMS server, you send an HTTP GET request to the NowSMS server.

We're more familiar with PHP than other scripting languages like ASP or Perl ... so there are a few PHP examples floating around ... this is probably the most detailed:

The concept is similar in other scripting languages. From your script, you want to issue an HTTP request. The URL formats for these HTTP requests are documented here:
