K, well how about just IDK fixing the PIN issue as it is stopping the whole modification from working at all. Uninstalled until this issue is fixed.

What are you talking about? If you don't get the test message with the PIN, you're not going to get any messages at all from the modification. The purpose of the PIN is to prove you own the number, as well as confirm your settings are working and you're receiving texts before the forums bother wasting resources and trying to send you all these texts that you're never going to get.

See what I'm saying? Make sure you're using the right carrier and email, and make sure you don't have to activate the email to text service through your carrier.

You are not getting it. I along with a bunch of other people are NOT getting the PINs in the first place. The phone number is correct, but NO PIN!

I'm not going to get into a shouting match with you over it, becaues it's like I said. That means your settings are by some ways or means incorrect, and you are not going to receive any messages at all with the settings you've chosen (number + carrier + email).

To help remedy this, instead of simply telling me it's not working, you could tell me what carrier you're trying to use and the email associated with it, and then I might actually be able to do something for you. The PIN number is sent the same way as all the other text messages are sent by the modification, so you're attacking the PIN because you're not getting it, but that's not the problem. You're not getting the text message that contains the PIN in the first place, thereby indicating your settings are incorrect somehow because other users can get the PIN number on a variety of carriers and countries.

Small problem when I tested the mod on my forum with my profile.
I selected Orange UK as the provider put in my phone number. It then wants me to select an email address but there is none to select.
I'm now in a loop and unable to get out of this. Reset fields does nothing and when I go to edit my details I'm taken straight back to the above screen.

Hello, sounds a great mod but I haven't been able to get it working yet. The mod seemed to install fine as I have all the SMS options etc in my admin cp but when I don't appear to be receiving the test message with the pin to my mobile number.

I am on 02 (UK) and there was only one email address to select which I did. Entered my mobile number as 07933xxxxxx (all numerics) and then sent the test message which I have not received yet, been waiting for over an hour now. (I did re-request the test message three times as well).

I have read the troubleshooting section of your read me file "Q: I'm not getting the text messages/I'm getting them after a long time." but I couldn't really understand what I needed to do.

Is there any advise you can offer at all please?

Thanks

I've heard a report or two about this. I'll try to add some way to fix it next release.

Make sure you don't have to activate the ability to use the email-to-text service through your cell phone company. I'm not familiar with the companies over there, but I know with Orange you have to activate MMS first. If that doesn't work, the email I have for that carrier may be bad. This will hopefully be fixed soon.

Have you activated it for 02, you have to text on to number 212.

Also make sure you enter your number as 447933xxxxxx and not zero.

What he said. Thanks.

I've built a feature into v1.2 that allows the SMS mod to report to me which carriers are confirmed working, and allows users to report carriers that are not working properly (i.e. wrong email). The automatic reporting can be turned off in the Admin CP if you have privacy concerns, but you'll be able to learn more about all this when I release it.

Anyway, this has given me the idea to add a field to the database to record carrier-specific issues or directions for each carrier or email. It's probably not a bad idea.
