22 Replies

I have been looking on the requirements page for gsm-modems which can be used to use Frontline SMS. However, these modems are all outdated and not in stock. All I found was a Huawei 1750 for 90…Continue

"Hi Ken, I've just received a Huawei E1750 modem and all is well. Still wish I could have found how to switch the settings on the Nokia 9500, but anyway, I'm glad it's working with the modem. Thanks!"

"Hi Justin Unless another user has reported trying these devices, we're not able to confirm whether they work or not (we're unable to test all modems in all markets, as you can imagine). The ideal scenario would be to borrow one or try one…"

"Anyone know anything about compatibility of the Huawei K-series? It looks like that's all we can get in Egypt. The K3765 and K4505."

"Hi Kati Sorry - can't add this to your last comment (Ning won't let me). The older Nokia phones do allow you to select the message destination (at least mine did) but I can't remember where it is. Newer phones default to phone…"

"Hi Ken, ah...So are you saying that the SMSes should be set to be stored on the SIM card, instead of the phone's internal memory? Do you know if it is possible to change where messages are stored on the Nokia 9500? We have not been able to…"

"Hi Kati The reason some phones only send and some only receive with FrontlineSMS is usually down to phone security - not all allow access to the inbox or outbox for external applications. It's annoying but just how it is. Our developers may…"

"Hi Ken, I don't know if you can answer this, but I've been trying to access the inbox of the Nokia 9500 using HyperTerminal (AT commands)--which is as basic as it gets. Even this program cannot see the phone's inbox, so, two…"

"Hi Kati Sorry you're having problems. We'll need to take another look at the 9500, I think. In terms of modems, these are the recommended devices. The ones listed on the site are reported as working - we use the Samba 75 for development…"

"Hi Ken, Unfortunately I found that your statement that "all of the phones listed on the website will work" is not true in my case. I am using a Nokia 9500 as a modem for FLSMS, which is listed under "phones that work". The…"

"Since you don't need a data plan to use FrontlineSMS, everything should work using the E1750 with a only pre-pay SIM card, assuming you have a credit balance. Because FrontlineSMS is unable to check and top-up balances, you'll need to do…"

"Hi Jorrit will the Huawei E 1750 work with a prepaid sim card. I don't have a data service like 3G or EDGE. I Just have the normal phone service with SMS on a GSM network."

"Hi John I fully share your frustration. The mobile hardware ecosystem is just a mess, but we made the decision to try and support phones because at that time (2005) modems weren't widely available. They're certainly not available…"
