Default how to send and receive sms using vb?


Hi everyone

I need help on writing a small application on sending a simple text sms like TEXT to the PC and it will get into the database (mySQL) to search for the information on it and reply back the result to the user. Please help me on how to start on the application and the hardware i need in order to do it.

If you have a mini application to this kind of application, can send it to mi at h0n0ka@ymail.com

By the way, i'm using either VB2005 or VB2008.

Thanks in advance

I know it's possible to send a text message via a 56k modem through a telephone line. You can dial a message center, post a message and hang up. You will pay for sending the message via your telephone bill.

For a more business-like solution... you can purchase a text line from many different websites. Most will offer an integration service / documentation to allow you to incoorporate their system into your own application/website/other business solution. Most of these systems are web-based so there's no need for any hardware etc.

The latter is the far better method to use, you can send and receive text. It's not really worth it though unless you plan to generate some profit.

You can use the Microsoft Comm Control in your VB application to communicate with your computers 56k modem. To send SMS in this manner your modem is required to take the following actions:

1) Open the line (pick up)
2) Dial the Message Centre number (like a telephone number)
3) Send a message in the correct format (the message includes the "from" number)
4) Close the line (hang up)

I made a similar project while I was in college... I'm searching for it...
