"Hey Ed, I know it is a year later, but we are trying to simulate a system we hope to implement in Cameroon to no avail. Would you be willing to answer some questions?  Thanks,  Joellen "

"Good to hear re: not a FrontlineSMS problem! But still a problem for you, none-the-less. Glad it looks to be resolved - best of luck going forward, and do keep us posted. Cheers, Ken"

"Hi Ken,   It wasn't a FrontlineSMS problem. Apparently the SIM and the modem we bought were both locked. We spoke with T-mobile and they said they do not unlock SIMs anymore and the Prepaid modem and SIM that we bought weren't enabled…"

"Hi Max   I'll leave others comment on your modem question.   Regarding your existing modem, it's strange that it's receiving but not sending. If it's being recognised by FrontlineSMS then it should work. A couple of…"

"Hi, I know this is an old thread, but I have been trying to get this thing running in the U.S. and have wasted money on one modem that will receive but not send, so I am looking for advice before going forward w/ a new modem. Do you know if the…"

"I tried a 720I CDMA modem. Hardly any Sms program would recognize it... Even the ones that claimed to be CDMA compliant. What I am asking is what is your time worth? Go out get new modem... install, test.. it wont work.. write here, ask…"

"The reason I am asking is that we have a grant from Verizon and would want to use it if their techonolgy is compatible. Has anyone ever tried the Fivespot or any other verizon technology? Thanks!"

"Why fight it? get a $30 gsm modem from ebay and get a goPhone sim card $19.99 unlimited texting.. it works.. Details of this are on the site. You can also just go to At&t get a free modem.. pay $60 fora data plan and $20 for texting for a two…"

"Raina, Yes it's real and contains an HSPA modem for GSM use abroad. This is like a mifi device which allows multiple users to share (tether) a broadband connection. This one just happens to work with both CDMA and GSM. From…"
