The system worked in the beginning and then forms stopped coming thru (by SMS work). Vanuatu is UTC/ GMT +11. Much much appreciated. My skype is skyfefe.…See More

Deploying FTLSMS in Vanuatu

In Vanuatu deploying \o/ for Vanuatu Family Health Association which provides Sexual and reproductive Health services in this remote archipelago of the south pacific. They are stoke with the forms application (we are using the version 1). We struggle a bit to download it to a pile of Nokia 2220 handsets due to a clogged monopolistic Digicel network. Vanuatu is the south pacific developing country with the highest teledensity (85%!) they are faced with tremendous challenges (remote and scattered…See More

Trying to set up email account. Created a specific gmail account ( I enabled POP in my new email account settings as well as IMAP).

Hi Ferdinand,

I am actually in Timor Leste now, but yes we did have success with FrontlineSMS but only after we gave up the attempts to use a phone and found a Huawei modem instead. I don't know of anyone who has had any luck with phones. And FrontlineSMS do not recommend their use any more. We use modems here as well. If you go to WSB talk to Jennifer or Rex about it. I believe Siula left recently. Cheers and good luck. John
