Forgive me for sounding a bit simple, but what about an email address? You could listen for new emails, and even perform conditional logic based upon what the email contains.

From http://www.developershome.com/sms/howToReceiveSMSUsingPC.asp:

In general, there are three ways to receive SMS messages using your computer / PC:

  1. Connect a mobile phone or GSM/GPRS modem to a computer / PC. Then use the computer / PC and AT commands to get the received SMS messages from the mobile phone or GSM/GPRS modem.

  2. Get access to the SMS center (SMSC) or SMS gateway of a wireless carrier. Any SMS messages received will be forwarded to your computer / PC using a protocol / interface supported by the SMSC or SMS gateway.

  3. Get access to the SMS gateway of an SMS service provider. Any SMS messages received will be forwarded to your computer / PC using a protocol / interface supported by the SMS gateway.

If you do not want to develop SMS software or applications but just want to use your computer / PC to receive text messages, you may want to read our Quick Guide for Non-Developers.

Look at Kannel: Open Source WAP and SMS Gateway.

I successfully configured it once, by attaching a mobile phone to my computer. After a successful testing we opted for subscribing to SMS service provider. In the latter case the service provider used to invoke our URL in order to deliver received SMS.
