Feature Request: Allow to send SMS messages from MAX products


#1

Hi,

FEATURE REQUEST

I really have a requirement to send text messages from my BR1 Mini. My mobile Vendor (O2) makes it REALLY hard to find how much data is remaining on a SIM card. But they do allow requesting this information via SMS.

Even my cheap dongle allows me to send texts from the device.

Please Peplink would you add this feature?

Ability to receive SMS messages as notifications and respond to them

I second this, adding SMS or even SMS command functionality is a great addition in my opinion.

Does this have anything to do with the SIM Toolkit:

I am in the same situation. I currently need to pull my SIM out of the BR1 each time I want to check the balance, because my ISP does this via SMS rather than USSD ! I would be very appreciative if you would add this feature. Thanks!

Some mobile vendors in the UK do not support USSD requests, so SMS requests are a much more universal and consistent way to request information like how much data left on a SIM.

I have used this method with success on other mobile devices, but on the Peplink I have to move the SIM card to a different device to get usage information, and as I said in my original post I think that Peplink should add this feature.
