It has been a while since this topic was brought up.  I tried sending per my instructions of the gps a sms from the device page but it wants a phone number and I tried all of the numbers tied to my sim card.  Then I saw where I need to set up API and the tutorial is old and not clear to program.  I made it to step 5 then error.  Please help for I want to use this service

Hi Justin,

Thanks for posting to the Support Community. Please refer to the AerFrame tutorial - Send MT SMS step to see how to fill out the required fields you're asking about.

Regards,
Bob

on step 5 the tutorial shows :

{

"callbackreference":{

"callbackdata":"{appshortname} -mtsub1",

"notifyURL":"{callbackURL}"

} ,

mine shows:

{
"address":[
"{imsi}"
],
"senderAddress":"{shortAppName}",
"outboundSMSTextMessage":{
"message":"{enterText}"
},
"clientCorrelator":"123456",
"senderName":"AFTestClient"
}

Justin,

Are you trying to subscribe to the outbound SMS notification channel (the tutorial shows it as step 5) or actually send the SMS using the application (the tutorial shows it as step 6)?

I thought I needed to do all steps?  Sorry I'm new at this.  I do need to do this to connect a GPS tracker that needs a phone number to connect through SMS correct?  It shows for me to SMS command a series of code including the cell phone number to bind the sim card.

Hi Justin,

Neo SIMs do not have phone numbers associated with them. It would be helpful if you could provide a detailed explanation of what you're attempting to do and screen captures of any AerFrame operations that don't work the way you're expecting.

Bob

Hi Justin,

The instructions you posted refer to a cell phone number. Neo SIMs do not have dialable numbers associated with them, as they aren't intended for use with handsets. Which GPS tracker are you using?

Regards,
Bob

it is a simple gps tracker no mic or voice at all.  Only has two wires 12+ and 12-.  No program port or anything.  Looked at buying a couple different ones and they all seam to program the same way.  Thanks for help bob!!!!
