Hi bryce,

i'm trying to debug a few glitches in my programming,

after I send an MMS ( from a handheld with nowsms settings )a notification gets send via sms

I'd like to debug this, so i log the http posts..
for some reason the sender id ( @@Sender@@ ) doesn't give back the phonenumber from the cell phone i send the mms with (in my test environment the username is the user's phonenumber )

in the sms gateway i set up this template :

/mms/mmsnotify.asp?username=@@UserName@@&password=@@Password@@&ontvanger=@@Phone Number@@&UDH=@@UDH@@&Data=@@Data@@&Type=UDH&afzender=@@Sender@@

what am i doing wrong here ??

Paul,

Generally speaking when an MMS is sent out, any SMS that is generated for the MMS notification just goes out with a system address.

This seems to be consistent with the operator systems that I've observed, where the SMS sender of the MMS notification has no relationship to the sender of the MMS.

So what you are seeing is normal.

I must admit, however, that I've never really thought about this before. In some environments, I could see where it might be useful to pass the MMS sender (as long as it is a phone number) through to the SMS.

I guess I did leave that open-ended.

I'd say that my answer is that what you are seeing is normal.

At least it is consistent with operator MMSC implementations, where the sender of the SMS has no relationship to the MMS sender.
