I have a simon 3 system and I am cancelling my central monitoring service. I would like to set the system up to call my cell and to also text it if possible to do both but I am having problems.
I turned off option 4 and entred my cell phone number under option 5. I then set option 13 to "10". When I tested it my cell phone did recieve a phone call from the system that said to push * for alarm. But every time I hit star, nothing happens it just keeps reporting the message to push *.
As far as setting it up for text message, I have no idea how to do this or if it is possible. I think I would set it up on option 43 with my cell phone number again and option 44 as "9" but this didn't work. It says it is for pagers but I dont know if that works for a cell phone or not?
Thanks for the help!
