Are you using the Siemens M55 as a GSM modem in NowSMS?

If you go to the "SMSC" page in NowSMS, highlight the modem definition for the M55, and press "Test", does it report that modem can be tested successfully.

I'm not sure how the proxy server fits into this issue. I'm wondering if you are perhaps attempting to use NowSMS without having a connection to an SMSC or a connected GSM modem. NowSMS requires a connection to an SMS service provider, or a connected GSM modem, in order to send any messages.

Today i have downloaded trial version & having same problem. connected through http proxy and when pressed Test show tested successfully.I am using dsl cable for internet connection not using any GSM Modem or mobile for connection. Does this NOWSMS require only Mobile inbuilt modem to send SMS.If yes which are the models supported by this software.

The Now SMS/MMS Gateway is a software product.

We do not provide an SMS service.

That's why the following text is bolded on our download page:

Please note that a connection to an SMS service provider, or a GSM modem is required to send messages using this software.

With a link to: System Requirements

I am sorry for any confusion, but NowSMS requires a connection to an SMS service provider, or a connected GSM modem, in order to send any messages. Parameters such as host name, port, username, password, etc., are all parameters that would be supplied by a service provider.

Hi Binu,

It requires either a connection to a service provider, or a GSM modem. A GSM modem can be a mobile with an in-built modem that supports SMS.

Unfortunately, I don't have a full list of all of mobiles with in-built modems. If you have questions about particular phone models, I can check to see if we have received any reports about a particular model, and I can also check the manufacturer specifications for device to see what is supported.
