Depending on how capable you want your SMS sender to be, it might be fairly simple. Usually, sending mail to cell phones can be done directly thru email by sending mail to phonenumber@cellserviceprovider.com. You could either provide a dropdown list of providers (thereby getting the second half of the email address) or have the sender just enter the full email address of the phone. My feeling is that this is much easier than trying to interface to SMS systems.
