Hello,
Does the NowSms gateway support forcing the phone to accept OMA or OTA settnigs, instead of having the phone ask the user what to do with the setting?

Hi Patrick,

To the best of my knowledge, there is no such functionality defined in the OMA settings specifications.

Thanks Bryce for your timely response, I keep hearing it is possible but I could not find any references in the specs either.

I guess it is one of those ota urban myths.

Patrick,

The only thing I can think of is that if you send an OTA with NETWPIN (IMSI), then I have seen people make statements that indicate that the phone will accept the settings automatically ... implying that the settings are applied without user interaction. But in practice, I haven't seen this to be the case (although truth be told I've only sent NETWPIN signed OTA messages to a few handsets for testing, not a large number of different handsets, because it is so awkward to get the IMSI).
