    I am developing an application, this application can send SMS message to another phone number. My application consists of one textbox ( used to type in recipient’s phone number ) and textarea which used to type contents. And a button, if click on this button, it will send SMS message to the above phone number that we’ve just typed. Because I don’t have GSM modem, so I can’t test my application. Please help me in this situation. Here is my code for IM button:



          Contact contact = new Contact();

          contact.MobileTelephoneNumber = this.txtMsgTarget.Text;

          SmsMessage sms_message = new SmsMessage();

          sms_message.Body = this.txtMsg.Text.Trim();

          OutlookSession os = new OutlookSession();


          if( os.SmsAccount == null )


               throw new ArgumentException(" The account is not initialized ");



          MessageBox.Show(" Your SMS message will come soon ");


    catch( SmsException smsex )


          MessageBox.Show( smsex.Message );


    catch( Exception ex )
