I am in Tanzania.  I bought an FSMS-listed cell modem from Airtel – a Huawei E153, since my Zantel cell modem was not on the FSMS list and did not work.   The Huawei E153 connects to FSMS on both of…Continue

"Glad you've cracked it, Don! Quite often the problems are quite straightforward to solve if people persist.   I'm not at the conference in Dar next week, no - but best of luck (and say hi to Stephane Boyera for me). No need to hide…"

"Hi Don   No, you won't need to buy another modem. The one you have has connected fine, and the fact it receives proves that it's managed to fully connect to the network.   I'm assuming the SIM has credit on it? If you put…"

I am in Tanzania.  I bought an FSMS-listed cell modem from Airtel – a Huawei E153, since my Zantel cell modem was not on the FSMS list and did not work.   The Huawei E153 connects to FSMS on both of my Windows computers (Win 7 and XP). Under FSMS Phones tab, the modem is listed in Working Devices as connected, and the “Use for Sending” and “Use for Receiving” are both marked affirmative. It receives SMS messages, but all Sent messages fail to arrive on different phones for both computers.  The…See More

"Hi Don   Have you worked through the "Troubleshooting" section in the "Help" files? There's a whole section there which deals with connection issues.   Take a look there and see how you get on.   Ken"

I have Windows 7 on Thinkpad.  I can't connect FSMS to either a Hauwei EC168C "dongle" cell modem or an LG Shine CU 720 phone.  The dongle works fine for Internet and can send SMS via its own software. In FrontlineSMS I get a "Detected" on COM3 but then a "Failed to connect" message. Please advise. Don LotterDodoma, TanzaniaSee More

FSMS for voice: can someone advise please

I am developing a large nutrition improvement outreach program in central Tanzania that will do follow-up communication with villagers via cell phone.  We plan to use FrontlineSMS for SMS.  But we will also need to make voice calls (hopefully) from FSMS to some of the clients, preferably via a "one-click" process.  This seems like it would be easy for a developer (but not me) to develop for FSMS, if it has not been done already. A search on the FSMS Forums found nothing on voice…See More
