Hi,

If you want to send SMS from your PC through your mobile, then you should read about AT command of your mobile......you see each brand of mobiles have a specific AT command, most of them are the same....you should search for AT command of your mobile then use these command in your VB project.

If you want to send your SMS from your PC through the internet, then you should search for SMS gateway, buy some credits, then use their http link for sending SMS in your VB project.

Best Regards,

Sending SMS can be in 2 modes. THe PDU mode and Text mode. PDU mode requires a very strange encoding and decoding. If you want to keep matters simple, look for the modem/phone that supports text mode also. You can check by sending AT+CMGF=1. If it replies OK, you are fine. THen sending SMS is just by one command
AT+CMGS="1234567890"
send message
send ctrl-Z
