Hey all, I was wondering if anyone can direct me in the right direction to creating my own SMS gateway preferably in VB, but if any one has any other suggestions on making it in a different platform then Iím all ears, cheers.

For a start you could start taking a look for API's.


And then read this little article.

Do you need to receive SMS? If you need to receive SMS, you will need to host your own GSM device or modem so that people can send you SMS.

If not, you can just use internet SMS gateways like clickatell as mentioned above will do the work, and post to them by HTTP, XML or email. The cost is about 6-8 cents per SMS. There are cheaper services, but not always reliable. If you need to host your own GSM device, you can use software like http://www.kannel.org (GPL Open Source) or http://www.visualgsm.com. Alternatively, you may obtain a shortcode from your Telco - but these come with monthly subscription of maybe one or two hundreds. :P

Hi, I think you should first check if there is already a gateway that you like so that you can work less. The one that I use for a couple of years now is Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. You can check their solution on their official site at: http://www.ozekisms.com/
