Hi Sir,
How to handle the following scenario...
The text of messages sent by the ESME shall be sent with 7 BIT ASCII encoding. This means that measures shall be taken so that characters that do not belong to this encoding or characters that belong to the Latin encoding, such as accented letters, the N with a tilde (Ñ), the open exclamation point (¡), the open question mark (¿), etc., cannot be sent.[ii]
When one wishes to send a word with Latin characters, these should be mapped to a 7-BIT-ASCII-encoding character. An outline of the mapping to be used appears below:

Original letter ---Letter after conversion
Á, á, À, à, Ã, ã, Â, â ---A, a
É, é, Ê, ê ---E, e
Í, í ---I, I
Ó, ó, Ô, ô, Õ, õ ---O, o
Ú, ú, Ü, ü ---U, u
Ñ, ñ ---N, n
Ç, ç ---C, c

Thanks and regards

There is no functionality in NowSMS to implement these mappings.
