Well, I'd try sending SMS via web - through an official web gate. Some
networks have simple web pages, thus they allow you to send
SMS by simply sending a GET or POST request via HTTP. Some networks,
instead, use some complicated javascript as a mean of security by
obscurity (captcha included) - http://sms.idea.pl, for example - I'd
try PBP (Python Browser Poseur; http://pbp.berlios.de ) or twill or
similar utilities. PBP uses Twisted.

... but, Twisted supports serial ports, so feel free to plug in your
phone and hack :)
