Hi,

With some carriers you can do the email-to-SMS but not with all of them (for 
some it may be a opt-in or paid feature). Different carriers have different SMS 
protocols so the easiest way to reach a lot of people on different phone 
companies (think also internationally) is through an SMS gateway, which offers 
just one API to send SMS messages to any carrier.

Of course for one person or for people all having email to SMS feature you 
wouldn't need the gateway.
