You have been pointed to the Cell phone solutions already (I'd recommend a Siemens in this case, as it uses AT-commands for everything ... extremely easy to script these). Apart from that some Cell phone providers did have a regular phone number where you could call, and send a message via a terminal program (might have been a 0900 number). You could ask the provider you want to send a SMS to, if they have this service. > AT&T shut down their TAP dialup late last year. Then tell them to reactivate it or tell your boss that your company has to change cell-phone providers, because AT&T doesn't provide the service (that you without doubt have in your contract) anymore. > The only method that comes to mind is to buy a GSM modem which has SMS > messaging capability. Give the sending PC a modem, to establish a internet connection with another provider. That way this PC has internet, even if your connection is broken. Dialup should be enough for sending out a SMS.
