If you send a message using the standard web interface of NowSMS, the web form is configured to submit message text using UTF-8 encoding.

If you are submitting a message via your own HTTP URL submission, then by default NowSMS expects that you have used UTF-8 encoding for the text of your message.

If you want to use the native Thai character set in the URL request, that is ok, but you have to tell NowSMS about this, so that NowSMS can perform the conversion to Unicode for the actual message sending. I believe the correct character set for Thai language is iso-8859-11. So you would use "&charset=iso-8859-11" in the URL request.

Hi,

Your best bet is to use UTF-8 encoding (UTF-8 is a 8-byte multibyte encoding for Unicode).

By default, NowSMS will use UTF-8 encoding for routing received messages to a 2-way command (although you can also select an alternate character set in the "2-way" setup).

If you send a message using the standard web interface of NowSMS, the web form is configured to submit message text using UTF-8 encoding. So you should be able to input your Hindi characters directly into the web form.

To submit via a direct URL submission, you would be best off encoding the text with UTF-8 and including it in the "Text=" parameter of the URL submission.
