Sending and Receiving SMS

I'm trying to test connectivity. I put a neoaris SIM card (ICCID xxx2711 ) in a samsung sgh-i897. I can browse,
but not send or receive texts. I can send an SMS TO the device from the devices page, but can't send an SMS FROM the device, either to an email address or to another phone. Immense immense immense apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. Where should I look, what should I do?

Hello Richard,

Thank you for your question. Currently we operate a secure network which only allows SMS access through a set of APIs. This means that we do not support SMS messages sent from devices and smart phones to devices on the Aeris network.

Information on API implementation can be found in the Knowledge Base at the link below

There is also a tutorial on the Knowledge Base, that you might find useful, at the link below

There is also a previous post you can read for more detail. Please see the link below

Best Regards,

Do you know of a SIM card that would deliver alerts from a device using the SIM card to cell phones?  I need to alert the IOTS device user with a text message when a set of conditions take place.  Thanks,

Hi Since there are python examples in the API pages, is there existing source code that can be downloaded for sms send receive testing? Right now, I cannot tell if the code I have written is wrong or the device is not sending an sms reponse. I would like to eliminate my coding part.

Thank you
