Hi,

When I send an SMS to NowSMS, it arrives garbled. Example from SMS-IN:

2008-02-12 13:59:03,+35387xxxxxxx,Text,Å,+35387xxxxxxx

2008-02-12 14:57:43,+35387xxxxxxx,Text,S-,+35387xxxxxxx

For the first one, the actual text sent was 'Test', but 'Å' was recieved. The second text was 'Stop', but recieved 'S-'. I've played around with all of the settings...nothing seems to make a difference. Outgoing text works fine.

Help me out here...? :-(

Permutations of the word 'stop' are as follows:

// stop, s-
// stoP, s-
// stOp, sΓÅ
// stOP, sΓ

// sTop, s-
// sToP, s-
// sTOp, sΓÅ
// sTOP, sΓ

// Stop, S-
// StoP, S-
// StOp, SΓÅ
// StOP, SΓ

// STop, S-
// SToP, S-
// STOp, SΓÅ
// STOP, SΓ

I can set up 6 different 2-way prefixes to listen for the above (increases to 12 if allowing for a space after 'stop', adds a '$' to the end of the above 6)...shouldn't really have to though...

Any thoughts...?
