Hello Markos,

This sounds to be a good idea. You just need to design a SMS-PDU.
At the same time you can also avail other WAP services (v-card, v-cal, push
messages, smart messages etc).

You can also extend this application for sending SMS in bulk by implementing
SMPP ( Short Message Peer to Peer Protocol ) protocol and linking
application to ESME (external short message entity)...need to check if
pidgin will avail this facility...then each user can have an account with
pidgin and they can buy a credit for sending sms in bulk. In this case user
will not require a mobile.

Have you decided about software language, tool etc?
will your application support on linux/MAC OS as well...though not sure
about AT commands...does they work with Linux/MAC?

I have worked on similar application, so let me know if i can be of any help
to you.
