Is there any way to disable SMS on a SIM?

I don't need or want SMS messages, and don't want to pay for SPAM messages received, as these devices will never read the SMS messages sent to it.

Thanks for the post. SMS from external consumer handsets to M2M devices
on the Neo connectivity service are not permitted. This security feature
is built-in to our M2M platform to prevent the kinds of potentially
abusive behavior to which you referred.

With that said, on the Devices tab you can click the pencil icon to edit your device and explicitly block SMS.
