I wonder if it will be possible to use NowSMS to compose binary messages for me (something that it does behind the scene anyway) and to do that programmatically. I dont want NowSMS to send a message through the modem but instead compose a binary code that I will subsequently pass to SMS Gateway of my choice. I know that right now I can lookup log file and retrieve binary code from there but I would like to have more elegant interface that I could use from within my own application. Heavy loads are also expected so I dont want to reparse log file time and time again.

We have a number of customers that use this type of configuration. Unlike you, usually they are in test environments of some sort, and they need to have NowSMS submit the SMS messages through specialised test equipment.

The easiest way to implement such an interface is to define an HTTP SMSC from NowSMS. NowSMS will then issue HTTP requests to the URL that you specify when it has a message to send. Your HTTP script can take the message and perform its own interfacing to deliver the message.

Ok Bryce works great for me. But now I have more than 1 SMSC connection defined and looks like only the bottommost one is used. Can I set one of them as active, so I can change connections forth and back without having to remove it and add it again when I need it?

Assuming that both SMSCs have "Support any outbound message traffic" checked, it will be somewhat random which is used.

For each defined SMSC, there is a separate thread in NowSMS that is scanning the queue looking for messages that can be sent through that SMSC.

Submit a couple of messages in quick successing, and you should see them go through different SMSCs.

If you want to mark one as inactive, uncheck "Support any outbound message traffic" for that SMSC.

Assuming that you're referring to Nokia picture messages, the following threads talk about converting from BMP to the Nokia OTA Bitmap format:
