    SMS over GPRS modems

    I have been asked to look at creating a small program that sends and receives SMSs. From what I have been told SMS gateways are too pricey these days so the client wants to use a couple of laptops with GPRS modems on cheap mobile deals.

    Just wondered if anyone has anyone done any programming on this type of thing before? Client will most likely be written in java.

    I have found a couple of libraries for this, SMSJ and javacomm and I can see that wavecom seem to have a big slice of the market with modems. Just wondered if this is the right direction I am going in.

    Cheers

        Works really well, Cheers.

        Using a 27 quid wavecom modem and able to send out about 700 SMS a hour and also receive.

        Code is simple as I just have to a write to file rather than feck about with AT commands.
