Well, here in Brazil operators offer that directly. If my phone number
is 5112345678 (51 = area code, not country code), I can send e-mails
to: 5112345678 at operatordomain.net.br and receive it as SMS.
So, you might want to check with your/his operator a similar/equal feature.
Now, if you're looking for using generic SMS procedure, just with a
different send screen look, you'll need a
J2ME/Superwaba/C++/Brew/VB.NET application to be written that would
fit your needs.

If I got it right...
