I am trying to send a vcard file using the Now SMS web interface to my Nokia 6600. I copy the contents of my .vcf file into the text part of the message and hit send.

I do receive the SMS, but the smart messaging component on the 6600 does not pick up the vcard file and parse it as a business card.

I read somewhere that it needs to be a class 0 message for the Nokia 6600 to parse the message. I did not find anywhere on the web interface where I could specify the type of message.

Using the latest version of the gateway - I tried all 8 options - starting from normal to 7.

Is there any way I can specify that it needs to be a class 0 message ? Or am I missing something here?

I tried the "Send WAP vCard" menu option, and it worked properly.

(When you send a vCard in text format, that does not include the necessary headers defined in Nokia Smart Messaging or the WAP specs.)

I don't think that Class 0 makes a difference in this instance. But if you did want to send a message out as Class 0, include a parameter of DCS=10. You could either modify our HTML form to include a checkbox for it, or include this in a direct URL submission as shown at the following link:

So, for smart messaging....is that the only way to send a V-card using the web interface?

How would be handle sending a Calendar item (.vcal) to the phone?

No, the web interface isn't the only way. If you look at the web form, you'll see that we actually do the vCard encoding in the JavaScript. The encoding is pretty simple, you add the user data headers (06050423F423F4), and you send the text of the vCard as a binary string of its characters intead of text. See section 5.1.3 of the Nokia Smart Messaging specification for details (although they are actually using a WAP defined format).

vCal, using Nokia Smart Messaging (and also defined in the WAP specs but not widely implemented outside of Nokia devices) works the same way, except that the UDH is 06050423F523F5.

Sorry, I can't. I would suggest that you visit the Nokia developer forum ... http://www.forum.nokia.com.
