To my knowledge, SMS requires a service provider. You'd have to use
their hardware, APIs, and libraries (and whatever platforms they
support). Google is a great place to start.
Building a full-blown SMS gateway may be overkill. If you're planning
to only send SMS messages to a fixed set of people, and if you know what
cell provider they use, most cell providers provide a way to e-mail SMS
messages to the phones. This is likely simpler than setting up an SMS
gateway which may require special hardware and contract with a cell
phone company. Of course this is not automatic and is highly specific
to the cell phone provider of the intended recipient
