You'll want to write a socket application running on a server. When you have access to a wifi access point or edge/3g you can send data to it from your iphone application. This server can then handle the incoming data and send an appropriate reply to the people connected.

For server socket programming, take a look at this guide - http://beej.us/guide/bgnet/.

For iphone specific socket programming, take a look at the samples supplied with the Iphone SDK. This link also has some basic information.
