FrontlineSMS

FrontlineSMS let users send, receive and manage SMS over a mobile network.

Hello,
I try to import contacts. It concerns about 2500 contacts. This takes a while, I suppose since I also programmed in excel to already have the codes to have these contacts sorted per groups. So I do other stuff while this goes on, but when I want to check if all goes fine, the screen of frontlinesms program is blank.
I already had this before with the sending of sms to great numbers of people.

Is it possible to see at which stage frontlinesms is on sending sms and importing contacts? Is there anything that can be done about the screen going blank?

Thank you

Ruben

Hi Ken,

 

As promised here's the result of my message sending speed test.

PC setup - MacBookPro Intel-based, 2.66 Ghz core2-duo CPU, 4GB RAM

SMS Device - Huawei E1552 USB

Provider - Globe Telecommunications, Philippines

 

Sending 120 messages

FLSMS breaks them down to bulks of 10, log snippets below:

1 - 10       -- [15/04/11 01:34:36] - Send messages took [122137]
11 - 20     -- [15/04/11 01:37:04] - Send messages took [122193]
21 - 30     -- [15/04/11 01:39:33] - Send messages took [122600]
31 - 40     -- [15/04/11 01:42:01] - Send messages took [122132]
41 - 50     -- [15/04/11 01:44:15] - Send messages took [122141]
51 - 60     -- [15/04/11 01:46:33] - Send messages took [127171]
61 - 70     -- [15/04/11 01:48:57] - Send messages took [122132]
71 - 80     -- [15/04/11 01:51:25] - Send messages took [122135]
81 - 90     -- [15/04/11 01:53:53] - Send messages took [122110]
91 - 100   -- [15/04/11 01:56:21] - Send messages took [122118]
101 - 110 -- [15/04/11 01:58:49] - Send messages took [122155]
111 - 120 -- [15/04/11 02:01:18] - Send messages took [122128]

As can be deduced above, FLSMS reports each bulk-of-10 messages are sent on average of 2 minutes or 5 per minute. However, the time gap reports slightly higher than that. Add it with the GUI refresh time delay (I did visual only observation before), hence, my original assumption of slower message sending for FLSMS compared to the dashboard (other) program in my previous post. Slightly higher than 2-3 messages per minute though but not ~8 as you mentioned.

 

Cheers!
