I'm trying to figure out how to send a ringtone from a c#.net web site but the more research I do the more I'm getting confused. I have a tone created already and ideally I'd have a form on the page with cellular number text box, a drop down of supported
carriers, and a "send me the tone" button.
First question is do I have to send the tone via SMS or can I just send a link?
Second question is where do I find a list of the carrier email address that supports ring tones?
Thanks in advance!

You can send monophonic ringtones using SMS. For polyphonic tone syou have to send MMS. About messaging I cite my own blog:
"You can send SMS and MMS through some HTTP-based messaging gateway. You cannot use ASP.NET to make visitor's device send SMS or MMS. For HTTP-based messaging gateways check out services like
http://www.smsdriver.com/. There are also many other services that you can use.
HTTP-based messaging gateways have their own API-s you can use and this far I've seen no complex ones. I got SMS sending work over MxTelecom services after two minutes, so it should be easy enough also for beginners.
Once you get API documentation from gateway provider you can write your code to send requests and process responses. Use WebRequest/HttpWebRequest and WebResponse/HttpWebResponse classes from System.Net namespace."
If you have more question then please ask. You are welcome. :)

For MMS can you just send them a http link? And for SMS have you ever used a component like:
Thanks for the fast response!

Depending on SMS/MMS HTTP gateway provider you can use API-s they provide. Some of them provide only HTTP GET/POST based API-s, some of them provide ActiveX etc components too and some of them provide even SOAP based web-services. Just read the services
overviews and FAQ sections, also help and technical sections to find out what kind of a technical features what provider offers. Also check out their coverage.
