It takes ~ 7 minutes from the time Nagios sends an email sms to AT&T to the time it hits my phone. I'm using because stopped working (which results in at least two txt pages vs. the one I was used to).

Is SMTP to a mobile phone a fundamentally flawed way to do this?
I'm beginning to think it is!

It's more effective to spend the money on SMS messages. Mobile providers are forced to use very aggressive anti spam measures, which can add significant delays in message delivery.

Recommendations on software and modems?
