I am hoping someone can help me out here. Is there a script/program available to send sms reminders. What i am after is people sign up on my website they can insert birthday dates, anniversaries, wedding etc dates into a calender and on the chosen date the script/software sends an sms message to the mobile phone number thay added a message to send to.
If anyone has any info / scripts can you pleas let me know.

Your options are limited:
Most cellphone companies [Cingular, Verizon] provide an email address allowing users to SMS cellphones within that network. If you want to use this, you will need to find all the SMS email address for the networks you want to support. This can take time and generally is not the way to go for a commercial service.
The other and more recommended way is to use a SMS Gateway, preferably Clickatell. You can purchase SMS messages for a few cents per message. They will provide you the script needed to send these SMS messages from your site.
