A tricky question for the admin of the board:

Have you ever tried to send Picture Messages to nokia 6610 6100 7210 etc etc having firmware v4.72 or later?

I am using clickatell services and after sending a bulk package of picture sms for advertising purposes i was quite surprise to see that more than 60 devices actually died! Without even having to open it first. Of course "flashing" was the solution but what really caused that?

Clickatell is suggesting this UDH header 060504158A0000 while u suggested previously 060504158A158A and Nokia Smart Messaging FAQ doesnt suggest the 06 starting at all but instead they say to concat mannualy your whole code, something i leave the gateway to do it for me.

Please note that on my 6310i the picture msg is appeared normally with no conflicts.

If you test this with now.sms and reply that you encountered no problems at all, then you have just found a new client for your services and a major bug on clickatell.

If you confirm that this is a bug, then you are confirming me for founding a major critical bug on most of Nokia's latest handhels.

Thank you for your time

P.S. Have the flashing equipment and software firwares ready next to you.
P.P.S. I 've posted this issue on Sept 03 to forum.nokia.com and they are still "investigating" to see whether I am right wrong.

That is quite interesting. I don't have any of those phones, so I can't test it myself, but I would be curious if others seem similar problems.

As the new phones come out with MMS taking the place of the old Nokia picture messaging, it appears that someone did not do a good job of testing.

I can explain a bit about the discrepancies that you note in the UDH header, however.

Either 060504158A158A or 060504158A0000 should be interpreted the same by the mobile. Actually, you could use any hex character for those last four digits. That field refers to the source port, and it is not important when sending a Nokia Smart Messaging picture message.

As for the initial "06", the first byte of the UDH is the length field. Some documents show the UDH without the length field.
