If you bought a 'PrepayData' SIM , this plan cannot send SMS, so suspect this will not fit your needs.

We are a GSM network, and all of our standard SIM's support GPRS. Just buy whatever suits your needs, I imagine a prepay sim with pay & go plan would suit best, as I would think the device wouldn't use very much data.
