We have some request for some SMS server integration work. After checking out the SMS server price, it does not make sense to get their. The second option is to use SMS gateway like Clickatell. It is still too expensive compare to sending SMS on your own, using a modem.
So I am back to the SMS business again, this is a small task for me as I have plenty of experience dealing with high through put two way SMS system. For this the through put is low and it is for SMS blasting.
Drop by iWow pick up and GSM modem iTegno 3800 USB model. Plug in the modem in the USB port then type:
$tail -f /var/log/syslog
Here you are it is at ttyUSB0.
Follow Itegno User Guide,
$ su -u
> No command ‘minicom’ found
$apt-get install minicom
> Minicom installed
Set serial pot to /dev/ttyUSB0, baud rate to 115200, bits 8 N1
Here we go, time to recall some AT commands, none is in my memory. Open up the user guide again:
>Hi, please scream ‘Got it’ when you see this SMS! Just testing out the GSM modem!
Listening,….. ‘Got it! But please don’t use my phone for testing,……. ‘. Ok it works
