    You do know that it takes an SMSC (SMS Center) to send an SMS, do you? Those SMSCs are operated by those stupid telecom companies and they charge you for it; the Java part is the easy part.

    I don't see how the OS has anything to do with it; you send SMS messages with a mobile phone or another device capable of sending them. If you are talking about an Android phone, you must have had a subscription with X free SMS messages in it - you still paid for it.

    But the key point is that you had a phone with SMS sending capabilities, you can't just slap Java onto something and then the machine can magically send an SMS. You need specialized hardware to do it.

    I think OP meant send an SMS troughout his mobile phone from inside of an app?

    And in most cases uve got a flatrate on that specific phone anyways or am I mistaken?

    It differs per operator per country; the billing algorithms are preposterous. You're much better off by sending/receiving messages through XMPP (an internet based short message service); but I bet those telecom operators want to charge you for it asap.
