Hi.
I am currently working on a J2ME project that requires my Tomcat server to accept a GPRS request from a mobile phone.
My server will then have to send out a binary SMS to that particular phone.
Being new to all these, i was wondering if now.sms gateway allows me to do something like this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi James,

The only problem with your scenario is that when you receive a request over GPRS, that request arrives with only an IP address as the source. You don't have a phone number to which you can reply (unless a custom application on the phone sends the phone number as part of the data in the request).

So that makes replying back with a binary SMS a bit difficult.

Receiving an SMS and replying to it is considerably easier because you know the phone number that sent the SMS.

The following links might be helpful to you for being able to receive SMS messages into your Tomcat server, and replying back to them:

For generic sending of binary messages (basically you just need to initiate an HTTP connection to the NowSMS server), the following links may be helpful:
