"Hi Ken,   It wasn't a FrontlineSMS problem. Apparently the SIM and the modem we bought were both locked. We spoke with T-mobile and they said they do not unlock SIMs anymore and the Prepaid modem and SIM that we bought weren't enabled…"

Anyone know an SMS Gateway or GSM that works with U.S. numbers?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows an affordable SMS gateway or GSM modem that works in the United States. I tried T-Mobile and AT&T, but they do not offer SMS with pre-paid service (they force you into a 2yr contract); and when I try Clickatell and IntelliSMS test services they are not working. Does anyone have a solution to this or a recommendation on an affordable, reliable SMS service so that I can run trials in the U.S.? Thank you for any suggestions you can provide, MaxSee More
