Hi All,

I am writting one application that has to send the GPRS parameters remotely to a mobile's user who request it.
I have written the XML file with the GPRS parameters, and before testing it with my own application, I decided to send the XML file with one SMS gateway, in order to see if its format is correct.

This gateway offers the possibility of sending the settings making use of the OMA OTA SETTINGS (phones should be compliant with OMA Provisioning Content v1.1), WAP OTA SETTINGS (OTA settings general for Nokia and Ericsson phones), or by sending one XML file.

I am working with Nokia 6021 and Sony Ericsson T630 handsets. The T630 can receive WAP OTA Settings and the XML file (it is not compliant with OMA provisioning content v1.1). I checked Nokia 6021 is not compliant with the OMA Prov Content v1.1 specification, but it does not receive any other settings I am sending with the other two methods either.

Why the phone is not receiving any settings?
Could anyone tell me what kind of XML file should I send to this phone?
Which specification should I look for?

Here is the XML file that I wrote:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE CHARACTERISTIC-LIST SYSTEM "file://c:/settingspush/settings.dtd"

Thanks in advance.

The Nokia 6021 should be compatible with OMA OTA settings. (The SonyEricsson T630 is sort of compatible, but WAP OTA works better for it.)

Many Nokia (and other) phones require that a USERPIN (or NETWPIN) be set on the settings before they will allow them to be accepted.

USERPIN requires that the user enter a PIN when opening the message (you specify the PIN when sending the settings).

NETWPIN requires that you know the IMSI associated with the recipient SIM card when you send the message ... which is usually only practical if you are the mobile operator (or you are a company and keep a database of these for your users).
