I have a client that needs a solution to send SMS messages. Because the client will be sending several thousand messages, it is not very cost-effective to use the gateways that charge you per message that you send. So, I was asked to develop a solution for them.

I did a little research and decided to go with a GSM modem and build a web service that will sit on a server. Then, call that web service from the website that will need the messages sent.

Now, here is where I need a little help. Can someone let me know what would be a good GSM modem to purchase for this purpose? I also wanted to get started with development immediately and not wait for the modem to arrive. I will be using .NET and the language (C#, VB, etc) really doesn't matter. I think I have found some code that will work for what I am doing over at zOpenSource.com

My cell phone is a Motorola Q and I also have an AirCard for my laptop. Does anyone know if I could use either of these two items to start development? Can I use either as a GSM modem?

If anyone could answer any of my questions or offer some advice, based on what I am building, please let me know. Thanks!

Won't the Operator supplying the SIM card for your modem charge you for each message anyway ?

Bulk SMS delivery companies like ourselves are likely to charge your client less per message and provide redundancy and support !
