We've been using Twilio for a while now. Works very well internationally, in India you'll still have to deal with crappy laws (SMS limit/dnd etc) though, twilio folks are trying to get this straight, but as of a retry policy and fallback to emails is necessary. Its a webservice with a fairly clean and easy to use API, so should not be an issue. Give it a try http://www.twilio.com/

There are dozens of SMS re-sellers out there, get an account from one of them. Aprxx 6-10p / sms and follow their instructions to set it up on your website.

sure there is, IIRC its open source. Its all a question of what you want to do really. From setting it on your website you have moved to a SMS server, two totally different things mate.

I just want to know how is a sms server setup and is it possible to setup one at localhost ?
like we use xampp and other software to do for web services.

I want to add sms related services to me project and test it if it is able to send sms to any given mobile no. like what the banking software or cms software are able to do :)

We used SMS notification stuff in our final year engineering project. We used some local bulk SMS provider (Don't remember the name now).

I am unable to make myself clear about your issue. Do you want to setup your own SMS gateway or use SMS service from one of the existing bulk SMS providers?

Prince.... You Cannot do it.
understand the thing here, Emails travel from internet to internet, SMS and Calls transfer NOT from internet but between TELECOM OPs. Can you ring someone's phone without a phone in your hand ? its a Point A & Point B which talk between themselves using a set encapsulation/protocol/tech.
Even when you make a VOIP(PC to Phone) Call, you need to use skype or any such SERVICE, as they are connected with telecom companies Gateway to route the call. For you to send SMS, you need to have a Telecom Network your self, which is impossible. Hence you have to buy a package with telecom company who give you a handy subscription to their Gateway.
