Hi all, 

I have skills in electronics and programming and I'm 46  years old so I've been doing those for a long time.  I'd like to help others with my knowledge, can you tell me how I can use FrontlineSMS to do that?

A local telco provisions this at a premium of about $1, that is a lot  of money in this part of the world.


I need know if frontlinesms can handle "gazillion" keywords

Comment by Jason Shim on June 28, 2011 at 11:41am
Ah, in my experience in Canada, it seems to be billed as a local number.
Comment by Olapo 'Dapo on June 28, 2011 at 11:34am
This service is not available in Nigeria, and besides, it is offered a premium fee, not standard rate as it would be if deployed locally on a standard phone number
Comment by Jason Shim on June 28, 2011 at 11:18am

Hi Olapo, great idea! However, I believe Google may offer this service already at shortcode 466453 


define meagre


I'm not sure about its international availability, it may be worth a test to see?

Hi Everyone,

Its a good feeling discovering fronlinesms, such a powerful tool I must say plus its FREE-opensource

I am looking to deploy frontlinesms in Education, the ubiquity of the mobile phones(basic phones) should drive this project to success

This project is what I call smsDictionary; a situation where you can send a word you want to look up in a dictionary as the "keyword" to a mobile number and get an sms back containing the meaning of the word like almost in real time; best for commuting hours when one has no access to to a dictionary and/or internet to look up words.



<Meagre> to 08020111111



<mea·ger adj. Deficient in quantity, fullness, or extent; scanty>


The reply would be made as basic as possible 'cos of SMS character limit. This may no be as comprehensive though, but sure will go a long way in helping to look up words' meaning as quick as possible when it matters most. 

I need some clarify on whether this can be implemented using frontlinesms
