Call them up and ask for a "Direct-to-mobile gateway appliance"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_gateway#Direct-to-mobile_gateway_appliance

Direct-to-mobile gateway appliance
A direct-to-mobile gateway is a device which has built-in wireless
GSM(Global System For Mobile Communications) connectivity. It allows
SMS text messages to be sent and/or received by email, from web pages
or from other software applications by acquiring a Subscriber Identity
Module (SIM card) . Direct-to-mobile gateways are different from SMS
aggregators because they are installed on an organization's own
network and connect to a local mobile network. The connection to the
mobile network is made by acquiring a Sim card from the mobile
operator and installing it in the gateway. Typically, direct-to-mobile
gateway appliances are used for low 100s or 1,000s texts per month.
More model appliances now offer the capability of send up to 100,000
messages each day. Several vendors that have historically provide GSM
Gateway equipment for voice also have an SMS capability. Some are more
primitive than others. The more sophisticated devices are engineered
with SIM management to regulate the number of SMS messages per SIM;
ODBC to connect to a database and HTTP interfaces to interactive with
third party applications.


Or find a service on the net...

Now if the iSeries supported USB or blue tooth, I could connect to a cell and send all these messages :) ATT would love that.

Anyone know how to connect an iSeries to a cell phone??
