I've been trying for the past several months to use the forms client in the United States, and have hit several snags. My goal is to build up a list of configurations that work for users in the US.
Question 1: does anyone know of a good GSM modem for the US that works with forms? I've tried the USBConnect Mercury from AT&T, and a Huawei E220 that I had shipped over from Singapore (inadvertently). This modem MUST still be in production and ideally should be available in the USA (so no SAMBA75, unfortunately). If you guys prefer USB connected phones to GSM modems, let me know.
Question 2: does anyone know of a good phone to use with the forms client? This is what I'm having the most trouble with. Apparently on most Symbian phones in the US there is an issue with giving 'unsigned' applications SMS access. Basically, you can install the forms client on the phone but you can't allow it to send text messages which renders it completely useless. I have yet to see a single phone in the US that will let you bypass these settings.
