Can I send sms from my laptop and the mobile broad band sim

Hi Telstra,


Trying to find information about the mobile broadband sim card I just activated is turning out to be a deep hole.

I was able to send sms messages the last time I used the device. and was one of the features that I was using while on the road.

However, it seems that I can receive the sms messages but are unable to send them.

There is a helpful message in the telstra panel, it might help you answer this, "Unable to send message".


Thanks in advance.
