Hi,
I got Nokia N80.
I have connected via USB. Everything is working fine.
BUt I gotta 1 question.
When I send SMS to my friend, it shows my mobile number I.e. sender info is my mobile number.

But how can I change it ?
Have a look at this picture.

Here, SmarTone is name of a firm / company.
I want to do same thing. When I will send SMS to anybody, they should receive Name Of My Firm instead of my mobile number.

How to do that ?

Sorry, but it is not technically possible to change the sender address when you are sending messages using a GSM modem. The GSM modem submits the message to the operator SMSC for sending, and the operator SMSC will always insert the phone number associated with the SIM as the sender address.

Using a dynamic sender address requires a different type of SMSC connection (not a modem).

Using a name instead of a number is known as "alphanumeric sender". A number of mobile operators no longer allow this for spam control reasons. Check with different SMS providers to see what they can support in your target country or countries.
