What is your "connected device"? A mobile phone?

For those current generation mobile phones that have a GSM modem implementation, the interface is send only, unfortunately. The issue is that the SMS client on the phone itself removes messages from the modem as they are received, so they are not available via the modem interface. 2-way / receive support was supported in older phones with GSM modem support (pre-2007), but it is extremely rare today.

In today's environment, it is better to use a dedicated modem device instead of a phone with modem capability. I'm referring primarily to USB modem sticks that accept a SIM card.
