    get latest Www::Sms from

    update with the new provider if wanted
    copy into your /WWW/SMS/ perl library directory, e.g. into:

    you have to sign up with O2 (previous genie)
    which is free at the moment and you can send 100 sms/month free
    you have to pass the username/password or the file which contains it
    dunno all the sim cards provided yet: o2 and vodafone work

    and test it :-)

    use WWW::SMS;
    #international prefix, operator prefix, phone number, message text
    my $sms = WWW::SMS->new('44', '7777', '123456', 'This is a test.','username' => 'your_o2_username', 'password' => 'your_o2_password');
    for ( $sms->gateways() ) {
        print "Trying $_...\n";
        if ( $sms->send($_) ) {               # try to send a sms...
            last;                             # until it succeds ;)
        } else {
            print $WWW::SMS::Error;           # unlucky!
