"With PHP" is not a magic phrase that will make anything relevant for discussion on this list, but it's 2:10am and I'm feeling generous. So, to send an SMS message with PHP... * Use PHP to access the API for a commercial SMS gateway. There's loads of these, Google can find them for you. Each will likely have sample PHP code (the one I use, Clickatell does). * Install something like Kannel and use PHP to access its API. I dabbled with this a bit, but in terms of the cost of my time it was far cheaper to use a commercial gateway. * Use PHP to talk directly to a mobile phone through a serial interface. Ditto as far as the reason why I didn't go down this route. I tried it back in the late 90s and it was fun, but commercially speaking it was a waste of time. There's very little PHP involved here, and frankly Google could have given you these answers with very little effort on your part. Yeah, the generosity wore off :)* -Stuart * Smileys aren't magic either. Well, actually some are. Like the SMS you can send to an iPhone and it comes out looking like a whale - that's pretty magical and totally awesome.
