It does still require a SMS centre and this SMS centre has to be
accessible from landlanes, which I don't know, if that is supported in
Ireland. Even if they opened up for that, they probably would charge you
the regular sms rates.

Worst case with this:
However, no Linux drivers available.
And don't get fooled, this is just a data adaptor for a DECT
basestation. You can't simulate a basestation with this. A friend of
mine bought one of these, because a company in Germany advertised them
as DECT basestation replacement, which would let you use your DECT
handset with you notebook for VoIP. Unfortunatly that only works if you
also have a working basestation, which is very unlikely, that you drag
around with you.
