Dialing number and sending text message?

P: n/a
I'm looking for some help on how to dial a phone number in my application
and send a text message to the portable machine that answers the call (cell
phone, Palm, etc..). Anyone know of any sites that include code for this of
something similar?

Thanks,
Dale

P: n/a
I would like to be able to send a simple text message to a mobile phone (the
same way I send a voice message when I call another cellphone). I spoke to
a Nokia technician and he told me that sending a text message to another
cell phone is basically the same as sending a voice message. He also told
me that text messages used to be specific of the carrier; now I can send a
text message directly to any other phone the same way I make a phone call.

Dale,

Could you be more specific? Like whatkind of networks you are expecting to
utilize?

For example to send Short Messages in GSM-network you need to have modem
which supports the GSM 07.05 AT-commands. If the modem vendor doesn't
provide "driver"/ connectivity lib you need to find a general purpose serial com library for .NET. After that writing a sender app should be pretty
straightforward (receiving would be a little bit harder).
