The function of sending SMS messages from the Internet to a mobile phone appeared almost simultaneously with the appearance of representative offices of mobile operators in the network. It is from their sites that SMS is sent, and for this special forms are used. Instant messaging clients have also acquired this feature at some stage in their development.

Find a tab or link on the main page of the site with the inscription "Send SMS" and click on it. A web page opens in the browser with a text message typing form. Its upper field, as a rule, is intended for entering the recipient's phone number, the lower one - for the message text. When sending SMS, you can choose the time of its delivery and the format of the message: Russian letters or the use of transliteration. After clicking on the "Send" button in the next window that opens, the message sending status will be displayed: "Delivered" or "In the process of sending".
