RE: Network Notifcation - SMS via Verizon

I've used <10 digit number> with my Verizon phone for several
years now without any issues or dropped SMS messages.  Obviously that's
an in-band solution, but it's simple to implement and fairly (in my
experience) reliable.

Subject: Network Notifcation - SMS via Verizon

	We have been discussing adding a wireless SMS based option to
TAP and SMTP delivery systems. We are running Nagios. In looking at the
archives, I found the following thread:

Lots of great suggestions.. In looking at the options, it seems that
seems to be a well used solution to integrate a GSM or GPRS based
phone/modem for text messaging.

However, I am trying to determine if anyone is doing this with Verizon
now. Our existing Cell contract is w/ Verizon and so we want to avoid
potential of lost SMS messages in hopping from say T-mobile or Cingular

So.. anyone doing SMS notification to Verizon w/ a wireless GSM/GPRS or
Phone solution? If so, you want to share how you are doing it?

Thanks in advance..
