Thanks for the reply James.
I tried the standard Optus sim and don’t recall the Error, but something along the lines of
“This device or service not enabled”
Aldi looks like they have dropped the cheap sms only sim and only sell more costly plans.
I would have thought data sims were also capable of sms, but not voice calls.
While it looks like James may have only used these for data, Hologram offers SMS numbers to attach to your service, and you can also use their API or dashboard too! Take a look:
Shame that Aldi no longer offer their long-expiry plans, as were a favourite amongst owners of phone-operated gates and the like, but I’m sure Google has your back when it comes to tracking down their successor.
All the best with the project, and let us know if this makes more questions spring to mind!
