Hello Laura, what do you mean fund raising for forms?

How can I send you my logs?

At 9:10pm on June 3, 2013, Paul Van Breemen said…

Hi Laura do we have any idea when and if version 2 will support forms?

 

At 8:45pm on June 3, 2013, Paul Van Breemen said…

Hi Laura, we are still experiencing the issues with double messages and the worst issue is that the SIM just seems to stop receiving.

If I remove the SIM from the modem and put it in another telephone all the messages start to download but if I replace it in the modem the SIM receives nothing. Please help!

Hi Laura, thanks!


BTW, you cannot join this site from a State Dept computer, as it dies on the "include your picture" pop-up box (apparenlty the picture is necessary for sign up).  Having a wonderfully locked down Chrome instance as I do, I cannot change this setting.
