I just got Frontline working and it is sending out messages easily (and fast), but is not showing any messages that it received. I know the modem is working fine b/c I also have the 3G Watcher open…Continue

Sorry if this is a repeated question, but I'm having a difficult time identifying a GSM modem and a service provider just for sending texts in the U.S. I went into a T-mobile store yesterday hoping…Continue

Online SMS service in the U.S.

I tried to register with IntelliSMS and I can't even get the regcode, possibly because I'm using a phone number based in the U.S. and not UK. Has anyone used any other online aggregator and if so,…Continue

Using GSM modem vs. online service

If I have good, reliable internet connection and need to send out mass text messages, would it be preferable to use an online service rather than purchasing a GSM modem and service? I'm having a…Continue

"Hi Raina, you can't use Verizon b/c they don't use GSM, I think they used CDMA or something like that. I think in the U.S., you have to use either AT&T or Tmobile."

"No worries, you're right. At first I was doing manual b/c I thought Frontline was having a hard time finding the modem without the 3G watcher being on, but I tried out the automatic thing a while later and it worked fine (I just had to be…"

Morgan Belkadi replied to Sarah Cha's discussion Receiving messages via Frontline
"Hi sarah. Glad it worked too! Just a little word on the automatic detection. Wasn't it working that way? Did you switch to a manual connection to avoid the 3G watcher to be launched? There is usually no need to try a manual connection, unless…"

kiwanja replied to Sarah Cha's discussion Receiving messages via Frontline
"Hi Sarah This is a fairly common problem - I'd say with 99% certainty that your 3G Watcher application is picking up incoming SMS before FrontlineSMS gets to them, and is removing them in the process. Stop 3G Watcher completely, or stop it…"

Receiving messages via Frontline

I just got Frontline working and it is sending out messages easily (and fast), but is not showing any messages that it received. I know the modem is working fine b/c I also have the 3G Watcher open (that installed automatically with the modem) and the received messages are showing up there. Does it just take awhile for Frontline to show the received messages? If I can't view received messages fast, I think the "keywords" functions would not work as well...
