SMS an application (.exe) to a mobile phone

SMS an application (.exe) to a mobile phone

Hi all,

I was wondering if it is technically possible to SMS an application (.exe) to a mobile phone... or any other way by which we can have a PC/Computer send an application to a mobile phone (without the need for me to actually "download" anything).

I'll really appreciate any ideas/comments/suggestions on this.


RE: SMS an application (.exe) to a mobile phone

SMS won't support attachments, so it would need to at least be a MMS instead. However it would depend on the device and network operator as it obviously poses a major security risk.
