menu, then left click on Add.
In the Carrier field, enter the name of the carrier
you're going to be sending the messages to. Examples

Sprint, and AT&T.
Once you've entered the carrier's name, left
click the dropdown arrow next to the Protocol,
then select SNPP from the list.

You'll also notice that there are several other
fields, including password, port, Max Characters,

Some carriers require passwords to use their
SNPP hosts, some don't. If your carrier does,
enter the password here.
The port should always be 444
The max characters field indicates the maximum
number of characters that this carrier will accept
in one message. Typically, for cell phones the
max characters should be set to 160. For pagers,
it should be set to 240.
Some carriers have a message limit, others don't.
