I've followed and used the PHP script you guys posted here in a earlier thread, but am having problems with sending messages that include non english characters. A example would be the 'ó' character, which ends up looking like a [] (square symbol) on the receivers phone.

This does not happen when sending through the "menu driven web interface" page.

Please advice

Finally! I found the solution after days of pulling hairs out of my head :s

Solution:
$msgText = rawurlencode(utf8_encode($msgText));

Oh man.. Now I'm facing the same problem, only with the 2Way script. It seems as though Now SMS is not receiving in the correct format for. The above solution does not work :-(

Hi Simranjit and thanks for your interest.

Now SMS' 2-Way settings are as follows:
Character Set: uft-8
SMS Command Prefix: *
Receive Phone Number(s):
Command to Execute: http://localhost/sms.php?message=@@FULLSMS@@&sender=@@SENDER@@&smsprefix=@@SMSPR EFIX@@&sms=@@SMS@@&recip=@@RECIP@@

the sms.php file look's like this:
<?php

$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'user', 'password');
if (!$link)
{
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}

mysql_select_db('now_sms', $link) or die('Could not select database.');

$sql="INSERT INTO inbox (message,sender,smsprefix,sms,recip) VALUES ('$message','$sender','$smsprefix','$sms','$recip')";

if (!mysql_query($sql,$link))
{
die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
}

mysql_close($link)
?>

Thanks again :-)
