I can send WAP messages to most of the phones without any problem. IPhone is not MMS compatible and can not process WML WAP pages.

Some models of Blackberry do not receive WAP messages at all (including IPhone).

This is very unreliable as there could be many phones that may not receive WAP messages.

Is it possible to send the direct link created by WAP in an SMS messages? e.g. If wap has created a folder which contains the video clip etc, how can I retrieve the full path and assign it to SMS body. The SMS will contain direct link to the video.

Hi Imran,

I don't have a good answer for you.

You shouldn't have a problem with WAP Push messages on Blackberry (unless they are CDMA based ... i.e., Verizon or Sprint in the US). But the iPhone's lack of WAP Push support is definitely a problem.

We've thought about adding a configuration option to allow the Multimedia WAP Push to just send a link in a standard text SMS message. However, that option does not currently exist in NowSMS.
