In reality, a SMS messages are transported the SS7 network, or voice network. To make the digital transition, carriers use a box called an SMPP gateway. To get access to this box, is by contract and terms of he carrier, and most commonly forbidden. As a result, the best bet is to use a SMS Aggregator. Once you subscribe to their service, they usually offer an API.
