Hi,
I am testing Type 0 SMS (From GSM spec, "A short message type 0 indicates that the ME must acknowledge receipt of the short message but may discard its contents").
Also, Type 0 SMS is indicated by TP-ProtocolIdentifier pamameter '40h'.
My question is: is it possible to compose, send, and verify Type 0 SMS by using NowSMS (by entering type 0, or ProtocolIdentifier value)?

Thanks.

Hi,

This type of message is sent with a PID (protocol ID) value of 40 (hex).

I've seen others refer to it as a silent SMS message or phantom SMS message.

If submitting such a message via NowSMS, use the direct URL submission, but include the parameter &PID=40

Example:

http://127.0.0.1:8800/?PhoneNumber=%2B9999999999&text=test+message&ReceiptReques ted=Yes&PID=40
