There are several ways to send SMS from PHP. Most of them require you to pay a fee either to a provider of a Web services API or by connecting to real mobile phone to send the messages for you.
There are also free solutions that rely on sending email to gateways of the recipient mobile phone provider.
Do you prefer free or paid solutions?

Using an open source Android SMS Gateway App which is described in the documentation, you will be able to send and receive SMS using your Android phone with this simple PHP class. Data are stored in a flat-file structure, and some examples are provided. Receiving messages and status can by handled by callback functions that you define yourself. WHen your form is filled, just send the SMS using the sendMessage method, and that's it !

There are many SMS sending services, but not so much free ones. There are some that provide free SMS sending up to a given limit. You need to use their APIs.
This class follows a different approach. It can send SMS messages by delivering them to email address of the respective carrier.
I am not sure if this really reliable because you must be sure of the provider people use. Anyway for a free service this is probably the best you may get.
