I'm not especially good with mobile technology, but I've programmed something similar on one point...

2) I've built a contact form in C# and there was a lot of "marshalling" to set things up with the server to write and then send out the email. So it doesn't really surprise me that you have to do a fair amount of work just to send the message. However, if you can build your "sender" as a class and then send messages through it, you will have built exactly what you're looking for and you'll never have to do it again.

Also, I would imagine it is highly dependent on the technology of the cell phone company that is sending the messages. There is not a lot of standards in the telecom industry which is one of the reason what you're doing is so difficult.

Hope that helps, and good luck!
