Customer Question
I have a GSM...

I have a GSM Alarm System and purchased the SIM card. I am trying to set up the system where I will receive a message on my phone if the alarm goes off. Can you walk me through this?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your smartphone?

I have a 7s apple phone

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your 7S? What have you tried so far?

I tried using the handbook provided to set up phone. I set off alarm on purpose and received no phone notification.
