As far as I know, it is not possible to set the sender name / number from a
normal mobile phone, it is possible via a direct SMSC connection (as used
by providers like TellusTalk, Connection Software, etc.). This usually costs
significant amounts of money, and a legal agreement needs to be established
to make sure the service isn't abused.. Look at Connection Software's
website to see details of such a service:
..prices are here.. costs 500 UKP per year to have an alpha tag with these guys..
