Woah, talk about out of my league.

SMS is routed through the mobile carrier's systems. Do you have an arrangement with them or with an SMS gateway?

Just be aware that all the programming in the world won't get you any closer to sending an SMS message if you don't have an agreement with a cell phone company to set up an SMS Gateway, which requires hardware, or an agreement with a company that has their own SMS Gateway. Either way you're looking at paying some sort of monthly fee to use their systems.
