You gave far too few information here. In general APIs are wrappers around some service. If you have enough information, you can build your own wrapper for the service you use. But it depends on the service, and the documentation you have for it. What exactly do you want to use as sms gateway?

Ok, but with what? Using a GSM phone or an other device, or an external service? To be clear: the question is not the API (although you question makes no sense). The question is: what will you use to transform your message in your computer to a gsm sms packet on a gsm network.

Do you know what SMS messages are? I doubt.
So let's be simple: you will not be able to do this without API. Forget it.
Try to find a cheep SMS gateway in your country, or in the region where the application will work. Check out this for the start:

You cannot, do anything without using some part of the Windows API. Please explain what problem you are trying to solve.

Shambhoo kumar,

You're question is throwing lots of people off. You probably should have asked the question, "How do I send an SMS (Text) message from my C# app without paying for a third party vendor." Many people get caught up here on the details about having to use an API to do anything.

Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, I have a relatively simple answer for you. You'll have to do your own research [Google Searching], but I'm sure you can do it.

You can send SMS messages via Email messages. Email To Send SMS Messages[^]
You will have to know the phone number of the person you want to text along with the carrier they are using for this method, but it does work. Try it out on your own phone with your email account.

Good luck!
