    I personally just email the phone. In my case I had to create a small script to create a plain text message via a telnet session because the mail server the cell supplier uses (Rogers AT&T) wasn't stripping off header information.

    I've swiped the HTML guts from my provider's web interface and built my own text messaging page on my site.

    I've also built an email gateway (either form submit or just plain email).

    I've also done the AIM to cell gateway.

    I have yet to figure out true SMS... With the above options, I'm not really worried about it either.
