SMS gateways are used by CommCareHQ to send and receive text messages.  Each SMS gateway is represented by a phone number - normally a gateway is setup for each country, but some gateway providers will let you send messages to many countries.  Details on our SMS gateways can be found here (Gateway Options to Set up an SMS Project).  

If you don't want to use one of CommCareHQ's shared Gateways, or if you can't because connectivity isn't working with the countries or networks of your recipients, you can setup your own Android SMS gateway with Telerivet, and integrate it with CommCareHQ.   An Android SMS gateway will use an Android phone and its SIM card to send and receive messages for CommCareHQ.
