Question SMS alert in Linux

Hi all,
We use this linux machine for SMS alerting .Here is the whole set up:
The linux machine keeps pinging our main server and when it does not get a response it runs 'smssend' command to send the sms through 'genie' website to
send sms to a couple of GSM numbers .
here is the detail of the command,
" smsend < username> < password> < Message>"
This service is free and it uses a chat script ' /usr/share/smssend/genie'.
But since last week we are not getting any sms. Whenever we run this command
we come up with some unknown error .
Has anybody faced a problem like this before and do u have any idea of how to fix it ?

web site change?

Have you checked the Genie web site to see if they have changed anything to do with the way it opperates?

I know they are always tweaking things.
