Although there is no default functionality in Salesforce to send SMS, there are some apps in the appexchange which can send SMS

Just search for the keyword 'SMS' in the appexchange.

If you have a third party SMS subscription, then you would have to write your own code for apex callouts or outbound messaging, but first have a look at the appexchange apps.
