There is a way but as far as i know you have to use external gateways to get this to work.. most cost too but u may find some freeones it's just a matter of searching google really.. i found one phpsms.com or sumet which said that it didnt use gateways but i dont see how that could be possible to be honest and they charge for the actual script so im not wasting my money..
i do know that you can set up an sms gateway but i beleave this has to work some how thru a mobile p[hone to actual send them..

On phpsms.com they say

The script does not use any third party messaging gateways.

They probably mean they're using a gateway, but it's their own.  There's no way to send an SMS direct from PHP without a gateway.


P.S.  I have an SMS server running using opensource software (http://www.kannel.org) running on Linux.
Advice to MySQL users: Get phpMyAdmin and test your queries work there first, take half the hassle out of diagnosis, also check the reserved words list.
