Telepathy? Astral Projection? Smoke signals? I'm not sure how you expect to send an SMS message without using SOME sort of device. Perhaps you could use one of the on-line SMS services.

There is this thing called paper -- pen where you can write your sms then stuff it in an envelope. After addressiing the envelope and placing a stamp on it you either give it to a mailman or post office. Wait a few days and your recipient should receive your sms.
Perhaps you are trying to circumvent someone's security by not wanting to use any type of modem or sending device.
There are free products available online but that is for you to research.

Well, if you are using an app on your PC, it's up to the app designer to provide a way to control it with VB.Net, and he or she may not want to do that. You'd need to contact the company and ask if there is an API for their program.

If it's an online messaging service, it's a matter of creating either WebRequests or a WebBrowser control, and navigating to their site and interacting with the web pages.

Hi,

You can use an sms gateway for this.

example gateway company selling sms texts

http://www.experttexting.com/features/

list of sms gateways worldwide

http://en.wikipedia....of_SMS_gateways

most of them charge a small fee to pay for the text but generally work out at 0.015 or US$0.035 per text
its really up to you how much you buy it could be 10 or 10,000 and that of course reduces the individual cost of the texts.

You would send an email to the required gateway which you will be given when you sign up, this then delivers the text via the phone companys servers.

Regards

Snoopy.

There are a number of free gateways. A Google search for "send sms online" (without the quotes), sent me to this site. Click on Asia, then Philippines, and send your message. Or you can go directly to the message page.

I'm not sure what it is you are calling a broad band stick. Here in Canada (and likely in the US), we have products that you can plug into a USB port, and which connect to the cellphone network (currently either 4G or LTE). They act like a cell phone in that they access the internet through the same process as a cell phone, but I have no idea if you can use them to directly send SMS. On the positive side, they will allow you to use a free gateway like the one I pointed out.

If you mean something other than what I described, I have no idea what you can do with it.
