Well, you can use a modem and sms_client, which has the added benefit that
your network connection fails for some reason it will still work....
Or, connect your nokia phone using gnokii, and do it that way....
Or, try and use one of those free websites, like mtn, this is in the
somewhere (good luck ;)
Or pay lots of money to eircom for using their email -> sms service...
I'm using the first method, which works fine...does anyone know what the
deal is with the esat number used in sms_client, ie who pays for the sms,
and am i allowed to use that number?
