 Hi All,

 I need to create the SMS functionality in PHP.

 Do you have any idea of Open Source SMS gateway which i can use?

If you have any idea of how SMS works, you'll know it's not
possible.  SMS is a protocol built upon a network for which you'll be
required to license (and pay for) access and usage.  It's not a script
you could install.

As Daniel already mentioned, SMS gateways are normally charged on the basis of 
usage. And there are several service providers as far as that goes, who 
provide APIs for integration with your own application.

Just FYI
www.clickatell.com is one. Somebody has even written a wrapper class around 
this service, that could make life a lot easier 
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/sms-api/)

indeed been down this avenue myself - best free way I could find of 
doing it for free(?) is to find the email address format for the major 
carriers (there is a list on wikipedia) then send an email to 
241412341...@carrier.smstoemailgateway.domain where the numbers are the 
phone number.

Well, in a way you could - I've been using sms_client for 3-4 years,
paying a fixed fee of 30Rappen per SMS via my phonebill.  It works very
well.  I trigger the SMS by email, but it could just as easily be done
from some PHP code.

sms_client is open source, btw.
