Good day, I am trying to configure a GSM modem (specifically a MultiModem GPRS model MTCBA-G-U-F4) to connect to the internet while the same modem is utilized by another program to facilitate SMS alerts. Whenever I attempt to connect to the modem I get a "Modem Busy or unavailable" error. After some testing I discovered it was the smsgws process blocking the modem. Is there anyway to connect to the internet using this gsm modem while maintaining the sms alert system?

Sorry, but the answer is pretty short ... No.
Even if it is being used for sending only, NowSMS always keeps a connection open to the modem.
Some modems do expose multiple COM ports where one can be used for SMS and one for internet. But I have not seen that with any of the Multitech modem drivers.
