.. Just my $0.03,

    If his need is mission critical, and $30/mo breaks the bank .. I'd
respectfully submit that there wasn't much of a mission.. :-p

    I do agree, tho, that an external / serial / mmmmaybe-usb gsm device is
the route to pursue.

    I also '+1' / 'bump' the earlier suggestion that the OP (bill) look
into Twilio.  Their level of support/interaction/help/you-name-it sets
standards I wish everyone lived by, and Twilio ease of use & reliability is
second to none, or, at the least, one of a very few.
