Disable incoming SMS messages


To disable incoming SMS messages:

1. Log in via SSH to the SMSEagle

2. Edit config
[NXS,MHD device type:]
nano /etc/gammu-smsdrc1
/etc/gammu-smsdrc2 (* if you have second modem)

[NPE device type:]
mcedit /mnt/nand-user/gammu/gammu-smsdrc

3. Add new line in [smsd] section:
receive = false

It should look similar like this:

# PIN for SIM card
logfile = /var/log/gammu/smsd1.log* (or smsd2.log
debuglevel = 1
runonreceive = /mnt/ramdisk/www/scripts/
receive = false

4. Save file and exit

5. Restart modem software

a) Enter webGUI > tab Maintenance
b) disable selected Modem and press "Save" button
c) enable selected Modem and press "Save" button


Now your device won't show incoming SMS messages, however it will be still stored on your SIM card. When you switch 'receive' to 'true' incoming messages will appear in web-GUI.
