I've used that, with an old pre-smartphone mobile as a GSM modem. It has the
usual GUI frontend and scriptable backend. But it is separate from Asterisk.
I have also used the OpenVox G400P/E in the past, which integrates beautifully
with Asterisk (incoming text messages, successfully sent outgoing messages
and failed sent outgoing messages trigger extensions in the dialplan); but
this card has been "no longer recommended for new designs" for some time now
(chan_extra won't even build against recent kernel or Asterisk versions).
Be aware that if you send too many text messages in too short a timespan, your
telco might deem that to be in excess of their "fair use policy" -- although
the exact dividing line between fair and unfair use seems to be a jealously-
guarded secret. The only way to find out for sure is to cross it .....
