RE: [nv-l] nv.carriers and skytel
We also use a similar service - the thing I had to change was the max digits in
pager - and you have already set that. Looks to me like your config is correct.
We did change baud rate to 2400 per a recommendation from Verizon Wireless
(they use the motorola 2-ways also). Might try that. We also have no dashes in
our phone numbers but I assume that is only cosmetic. Here is our entry for
Modem phone #: 18005578081
Numeric IDs accepted on modem line: N
DTMF phone #: 800746XXXX
Max. message length: 400
Max. digits in alphanumeric pager #: 10
Max. blocks/transaction: 6
Max. transactions/call: 30
Baud rate: 2400
Data bits: 7
Stop bits: 1
