Hi Everyone,

I'm Adam the new Intern at FrontlineSMS. One of the most difficult issues (that has come up all over the forum) is around finding the right phones and modems that work with FrontlineSMS. As a very small development team with a limited budget it is difficult to get our hands on as many phones as we would like to test. One of my first jobs here at FrontlineSMS has been to update and collect the list of phones that have been tested and discussed throughout Ning. 

As we continue to expand our list of phones we wanted to share the list we have collected so far and so I have been keeping all of the information in a Google doc. Feel free to view it here, but keep in mind it is a work in progress. I have been conservative and have only included verified or expected connections. Essentially the phones on this list may work with other OS, even though they have not been tested.

This main page of phones is here: FrontlineSMS PhoneList
And you can see the full data set that powers this spreadsheet here.

Throughout the summer I want to keep updating and improving this list. To include all of the phones and modems that work, we really need your help. You, our users, have tested lots of phones in lots of different configurations and so we would like to compile that information here.

If you have a phone or modem that you have used in the field that isn't on our list please respond to this group. Let us know what OS you are using, what you used to connect the phone, any problems you encountered. With your help we can help to compile a growing list of phones 

Thanks,

Adam

Hi Adam! I check the FrontlineSMS Phone link. What do you mean when you put an X or a NO on the OS platform? Does it mean that that phone would not work on that type of OS?

Thanks!
Hi Elson,

I just went and updated the key on the site. The x in blue means that it has been tested with the OS and should work. The no, means that it has not been tested.

Thanks,

-Adam
Thanks Adam!
Do you think K850i would also work?
I notice that the K810i is already working and they are almost the same with the k850i.
hmmm..

Thanks!

Adam you should include in your list the type of OS where it is working. (32bit or 64bit) because i think my problem is the os framework..
any idea of yours?... may this post will help...

more power!!! \o/
OS: Windows XP 32 bit
FLSMS version 1.6.12
Phone: Sony Ericsson T700

"Failed to Connect : IOException: write error".

I see this phone is in the list showing as "Not tested but "should work for anything"

FLSMS staff could not help me to get it working and suggested I get a GSM modem which I think means you should mark it as "Tested" and "doesn't work" unless anyone else has been successful.
