I know how to code an RTTL ringtone to an SMS Nokia binary format. I want to know if i can send it directly to a cellphone, for example:
I have: //SCKL1581 0605041581000002, so i send this by email like this: SCKL1581 0605041581000002, because with two // never arrives, so i forward the ringtone to my cell adding //, and i have the ringtone. is a directly way to send it?? i mean, without need to forward?
Thank u very much

Most US mobile operators offer free e-mail to SMS gateways. (Most mobile operators outside of the US do not. The difference is due to the fact that outside the US, only senders get charged for sending an SMS, while in the US the receiver also gets charged.)

However, these gateways typically add the e-mail sender address and message subject to the beginning of the SMS message. Sending one of these Nokia messages requires that the "//SCKL" be at the start of the text of the SMS message, so the additional text added by the e-mail gateways generally prevents these messages from being properly sent.

As for directly sending it, you could send it through an SMS service provider, or some mobile phones can act as a GSM modem allowing the phone to be connected to a PC via a serial/USB port or bluetooth/infrared connection. Software like NowSMS can sometimes help in simplifying the process of sending SMS messages through a service provider or over a GSM modem connection.
