"Thanks Gordon for your response. We are using a Netman, modem locked to the national cell phone provider and it works perfectly w/FrontlineSMS, is in our budget, but won't interface with Twitter. The device/modem/netman will only connect if…"
"Yes, not so in the USA, MNOs set up three different plans for pay as you go plans. The serial number of the SIM gets tied to what you request and the cost is based on the plan. Mostly people get a long term plan and the Sim card is tied to that…"
We are excited to report that we have connected our modem. Wrong SIM card, needed both voice, text and data. Now we are trying to receive forms on the mobile phone. We are at exactly the same place as Simon. Messages are sent and…"

Why are you interested in FrontlineSMS? How did you hear about it? (To help us filter out spammers, we need as MUCH detail as possible, else we may not be able to approve your request. If you'd rather not share this information openly please email firstname.lastname@example.org before joining)
I am working on an M-Ag project with AMIS Cameroon and FrontlineSMS will most likely be part of the project.

But perhaps i wouldn't be able to help that much anyway as i left Namibia in Septeember 2010. I did use FrontlineSMS quite successfully to communicate easily and quickly with teachers and principals around the Caprivi Region. I got my SIM card on an accoutn where i jsut had to maintain a minimum credit in my account and i got 500 free texts a day. Then just had to keep track of how many texxts i was sending to make sure i didn't go over my limit.
I had different groups for teachers/principals/ and also by subject, and by circuit, so i could pick out whcih group of people i wanted to message. It worked great.
Where are you working? Please let me know if i can still be of any help.
