I'm sure that is good guidance. My concern is that we might need a very large intervention and control group to study hypertension, if for example, only 70% had cell phones that could receive SMS, 50% volunteered to participate and there was a 30% attrition rate.

I assume we can batch SMS but I don't know about reverse billing using FrontlineSMS so the recipient would not be charged. Also, I have never attempted a study with SMS. If we ask their blood pressure results, I suppose they could respond with 120 80 or two text messages, one for systolic BP and one for diastolic BP. This is all exploratory so there are a lot of details we need to work out. Thanks for your help

Dear Ken,

I have finally installed the software. However I now need guidance on the following. How to attach a phone and a modem. How to save contact numbers and how to send these messages.

Hi Ken,

I am using FLSMS with my application in JSP. I am able to send an SMS writing via FLSMS using my jsp code. Now, I have set up a keyword, set an auto reply and an http request for it. The auto reply is sent and the http request shows a hit but the jsp page is not executed. Does anyone has any idea about this problem...?
