Curious as to what devices are working with the software.

We need to setup a wireless modem so that if the network or phone system is down, pages can still be sent via wireless SMS to cell phones.

Most of our user base uses Verizon. But the only wireless serial modems that I've found are GSM based.

I assume that that can be used by getting a GSM provider account with the modem, but I'm curious as to what types of modems people have been successful with.

To use the GSM protocol with PageGate - you don't need a "modem" specifically - we have implemented several installations with a cell phone connected to the PageGate server PC via serial cable. Another thing to keep in mind is that the phone does not necessarily have to be with a GSM provider - it merely needs to be able to accept and work with the standard AT Command Set. The GSM protocol includes this command set but some of the older Nokia CDMA units do as well. If you're looking specifically for a cellular modem - we have had great luck with MultiTech's line (DISCLOSURE: We are a MultiTech reseller - found that the line worked so well that we became a partner)
