Hi, I'm working on a project where I just need to prove that I can send and receive sms from my laptop -so no fixed connection.

I have had a quick look at clickatell today, and I'm getting the impression that you can do this using SMPP? 

Whatever I create has to be able to also work in France - I'm guessing that this is pretty easy, but that I'd need to register beforehand to get the Two way Sms account?


Thanks for your help :)

Would you consider the aid of a cellphone?

I use a Macbook, a Nokia E51, and Bluephone Elite II. Works perfectly. Phone can be anywhere in the house, and messages push through and popup on screen, and I can send from a nice little SMS app, and it integrates well with OSX's Address Book app.

Might not be what you are looking for, but you never know!

Well I've actually got that hooked up at the moment. 

I was just thinking of sending sms over the net as a backup option. (I'm off to france and will send and receive sms in a competition) - so just incase things screw up I'll know what to do :)
