Well, you can always go blackhat....


But more seriously, if you have the android sdk installed and the phone
connected by USB:

adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.SENDTO -d sms:CCXXXXXXXXXX --es
sms_body "SMS BODY GOES HERE" --ez exit_on_sent true
adb shell input keyevent 22
adb shell input keyevent 66

You could also just use the normal permissions an Android app can request,
like for sending sms.
