where can I find a free or cheap mobile operator lookup or carrier lookup service to identify the carrier for a list of phone numbers in USA, without incurring large monthly fees?

The documentation says thre is a callout available for routing MMS messages but not SMS messsages. It would be great if the existing billing callout for SMS could be extended to allow the external process to provide routing information as well.

Hi Frank,

That's actually quite a very good idea.

We've had an SMS routing callback on the plans for quite some time. But we were planning for the routing callback to be separate from the accounting callback.

In review, it actually makes more sense to allow the accounting callback to return routing information in its response. That way there is no need for a separate callback.

And since this callback happens when the message is posted to the queue, it is the perfect time to simply embed the routing information into the queued message.

I think the only messages that need routing, but do not currently receive accounting callbacks are 2-way SMS responses. So we would need to add an accounting callback for them.

I can't make any promises, but we did have an engieering meeting this morning, and this was one of those "eureka" moments ... it could turn a difficult task that has been pending on our engineering list for quite some time into an easy task.

It still requires more review. And I don't have any idea of timeline at this point. But, hopefully this will be as easy as the preliminary review suggests.

Hi Frank,

We're going to go ahead and make an update that includes this capability available in a testing release prior to a more general release.

In addition to this particular feature, we have also implemented a considerable amount of performance optimisations, and changes to the SMS routing logic, which effect core components of the NowSMS product.

We've completed our internal testing of this update. However, because there were a large number of internal changes, optimisations and fixes, we are going to make this version available as a test release before general release.

We're quite confident that this release is actually more stable and robust than previous versions. We know the performance and CPU overhead is much improved. We know that overall disk I/O has been reduced. And we know several rather significant bugs that have been fixed in this release. But, the problem with bugs is they are very much configuration dependent, and with such a large number of configuration options, we may have missed something that affects particular configurations, so we want to get some more feedback.

This update can be downloaded at http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms200811.zip.

Regarding this particular feature ...

NowSMS will now check the response from the "SMSSend" accounting callback. If this response includes the text "SMSCRoute=xxxxx", then NowSMS will apply this route for the message.

We've also improved the performance of the SMS accounting callbacks so that HTTP keep-alive sockets are used. This improves how quickly NowSMS can process the callbacks, so that their impact on overall message routing speed is not as significant.
