Europe, at least most countries I know, use regular SMS messages which
you can either send from your own GSM-mobile, or using some sms-gateway.
There used to be lots of free (add-supported) SMS-gateways, but these
seem to be reducing fast.

You could try dialing into the message-center yourself, although this
could be expensive, best bet is to just SMS from your own mobile phone.
