Hello,I try to import contacts. It concerns about 2500 contacts. This takes a while, I suppose since I also programmed in excel to already have the codes to have these contacts sorted per groups. So…Continue

"Hello Alex, I have never used VBA, don't really know what it is. But I think I am a quick learner for excel, so maybe some tips could help me to get started. I don't know how difficult this will be, but I should transfer what I learn here…"

"Sounds spot on to me, Ken - these look like delivery notifications and can be disabled per-device from the FrontlineSMS Phones/Connections tab."

"Hi Ruben,   Sounds like an interesting system you have set up.  Also sounds like a bit of a pain pasting hundreds of SMS into FrontlineSMS!   You could use VBA in Excel to make HTTP requests to trigger each SMS using…"

"Hi Ruben   If the messages are being successfully sent, then I'd just check the settings within your USB modem software to cancel notifications. It sounds as though it's picking up on messages sent via FrontlineSMS and playing…"

"FrontlineSMS doesn't need the embedded software to be running to access the modems (in fact, running this at the same time often blocks access to the port). In reality, FrontlineSMS can send through as many devices as it detects, so I would…"

"Hi Ken, I have the impression that the embedded software from my USB-stick does not allow for 2 sticks to be activated, or at least to make contact with FLSMS. Is that possible? I find myself sending sms with 1 stick at a time. I tested 2, but no…"

"Hi Edwin   Interesting. I don't think there's any way around this, i.e. to speed up sending. Let us know if you find out anything more! In terms of using multiple modems, FrontlineSMS does support this so you can in effect double…"

"I work with ZTE model:MF626 HSDPA USB Modem. So do you mean that it can be possible to send so many (100000) sms per hour with a USB modem? I thought that speed for sending was limited by the mobile phone network and that maximum speed was 1 sms/8…"
