Thanks for the answer.
I have thought of using sms, but the system is kind of time critical meaning that I need to get contact with the device quite quickly and I am a bit affraid of the delay using sms. But as long as the sms arrive at the device within about 30-45 sec then it should be ok.
Anybody got any experience with how the delays are with sms? And how often are there delays?
I might look into Skype again.
