I know it might not be what you want (Email .vs. SMS), but I use the System:Email command using an Elk Trigger to my gmail account (In my case alarm status changes), and it has worked great for years.

System::EMail
    P1=GMAIL
    P2=email@gmail.com
    P3=Alarm Message
    P4=Alarm System is Now Disarmed!

Thanks. Yeah, I've been using that but really wanted a solution that does not rely on the Internet. The SMS modem will always send the SMS message. The GSM modems are really reliable as SMS messages are sent on a different channel that phone calls. 

My current alarm panel uses a GSM transmitter to call back to central station and has never failed.
