Thanks for the help.  Right now I'm running asterisk on a raspberry pi using a phone number from flowroute.  Is using a company like flowroute the same as connecting to the PSTN?  Also i've tried to install smsq but I couldn't find any good documentation to get it setup properly.  So no, I'm not using smsq.
