At our shop we have a piece of kit that calls up a mobile number to communicate to our mobiles with text messages that vtell us when the alarm is set/unset, alarms and other stuff.
The number it calls is 07960 980480, but this number now seems either permanently engaged or just doesn’t answer at all. O2 (who run the number) don’t seem to even know what i’m talking about!
Vodafone also have an access number, but although it does answer, it chirps for a few seconds and hangs up.
The T-Mobile one no longer exists.
Anyone use such a service and can recommend something reliable?
YES…. OpenTAP from DIDcomms its the only free of charge and reliable TAP gateway in the UK at present. The only catch is you must register to use the service which prevents fraud and text spammers.
