I have downloaded the trial version, so I could check out all the capabilities of NowSMS. So far so good, I am very glad. I have been experimenting with EMS messages to send images through hexadecimal input.
This works very fine, but I would also like to add text to the message and not only an image.

Could anyone help me out with this? Thanks!

Hi Matt,

We actually added this functionality recently in response to another discussion thread. However, real world results were not as expected.

Granted, after making the update, the only EMS handset that we tried it out on was a SonyEricsson model, so behaviour might be different with other phones.

The discussion started here:


First we added support for the "text=" parameter when sending an image with Nokia Smart Messaging in a December 2008 update. That update is incorporated in the download version at http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms2009.zip.

Since then, we've also added it for EMS ... however a few tests on some SonyEricsson handsets resulted in the handset ignoring the text and just displaying the prompt "Download message received. Save contents?", like it does when the image is sent without any text. Nowhere was the text that we included in the EMS message displayed.

The update that includes this support is not yet available. But it should be available in about a week or two.
