There are a few SMS gateway providers out there who will provide SMS
origination and termination in various forms, example
http://www.clickatell.com. The most straightforward would be SMS to smtp.
Some providers do provide a more advanced api which will even allow
changing of caller id - so you can send from email and response will go
to your mobile.
As VOIP is 'voice' I am not sure why you particularly VOIP providers, if
you are talking about the conversion of SMS to a SIP MESSAGE (which
appears on most SIP client displays), and visa versa, I am not aware of
provider that does provide this.
If you are looking to display SMS's on your voip terminal you could
write a pretty simple script using sipsak to convert smtp to a SIP
MESSAGE and have it appear on your terminal.
There is also PSTN SMS which is implemented in a different way to mobile
(mobile uses MAP messages on SS7, PSTN uses a DTMF system). Asterisk PBX
supports this DTMF method natively..ie if you have landline phone which
supports SMS you can use asterisk as an SMS service center - you could
therefore use asterisk as an SMS to email gateway also.
