    Sending SMS in VB.Net


    I am new to VB.Net programming. I have received a request for an application which requires the following features. I would appreciate any help / lead / direction in this.

    01. When a particular event happens in the application, say for an example a new order from a customer is entered, it needs to send an eMail as well as SMS to a specified person on his GSM / CDMA / GPRS Mobile. The text of the message can be standardised. Please advise how this is to be done.
    02. Similarly I should be able to receive an SMS in a standardised format (CSV for example) which will add records into the database. ( SQL Server 2000 ).
    03. I should be able to send limited data in CSV format to a mobile to the specified user.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    Do you have access to an SMS-C. I'm not very familiar with using an SMS-C, but your operator should have good documentation on this.
    If you do not have access to an SMS-C, I can think of to other options. Either a web-based API provided by your operator, or simply a mobile phone which you operate with a serial connection, sending AT-commands.
    I've tried the latter solution (GSM) and it works fine, but I guess that depends on the scale of your solution, e.g. how many SMS do you expect to send / receive?

    I am looking to create a simular application. I need a way to receive and send SMS compatible with CDMA and GSM. Connecting a cell phone to the pc to receive and send messages seems to be a way to go to accomodate both technologies. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this? Is there a library or software that I can use to interface with the phone?

    Thanks for any help in advance!
