Hi, I'm developing an application for my school project.

Is there a tutorial or sample application for sending SMS message to cellphones from the computer?

*note: the computer is connected with a mobile phone which is used to send out SMS messages.
The application is in the computer not on the mobile phone.

I don't have any idea what package/function to use for this, please help.

Hi,
You can send SMS using mail. Suppose ur 10 digit no. is 1234567890 and ur service provider is madhu (like T-mobile, O2) , then u can send a mail to 1234567890@madhu.com using JavaMail.

Hi! You just send AT commands (strings / text) like for any other modem, over a classic RS232 or Bluetooth (a serial link). See http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/html-info/27007.htm .
Probably you'll need javax.comm (for RS232) Good luck!

Not sure if this will count for your assignment, but many mobile operators allow you to send SMS messages via e-mail. For example, to send a message to a T-Mobile phone in the US, you send it to 1234567890@tmomail.net, where the leading 9-digit number is the mobile phone number. So, with an internet connection and a fairly complete set of carrier-specific domain strings, you could just use the javax.mail API.

Just out of curiosity, is your PC/mobile connection physical or wireless? J2ME development?
