I would like to send and receive SMS from my application, preferably using an android phone.

I am currently using the app SMS gateway by b00lean, but when it sends messages it requests a receipt which my service provider bill me extra for.

I want to send and receive messages using HTTP requests on the local network, not via any cloud service. I have checked some apps, but many of them is communicating through a cloud service or don't have the possibility to send SMS directly via an HTTP request.

Anyone know an app which may work?
