Qt Mobility's framework was a wrapper around each phone operating 
system's sms sending software. I believe certain hardware was also 
required like communications hardware to talk to the cell towers and sim 
chip reader to get the sms authentication codes and sms server addresses 
from the sim chip/phone. Correct me if I'm wrong or don't have a full 
understanding about how it all works.
