Should I use Now SMS/MMS gateway to send WAP push messages via my GSM modem (such as Nokia 30 or TC35)? Actually, I already set up a GSM modem as the SMSC connection, and tried to send some messages on the web interface Now gateway provides, text message all are OK, but WAP push is not available. ??

Hi Robin,

There is sometimes a different setting that is required for sending binary message types like WAP push with different operators.

If you are using the NowSMS v5.50 release, please try editing the SMSGW.INI file, and under the [SMSGW] section header, add the following statement:

BinaryDCS=F5

Then restart the NowSMS services, and try the WAP push again.

If you are running a NowSMS version other than v5.50, please try editing the SMSGW.INI file, and under the [SMSGW] section header, add the following statement:

BinaryDCS=4

Then restart the NowSMS services, and try the WAP push again.

(Basically, there are different defaults for this setting for different versions of NowSMS.)

If this doesn't work, and you're running v5.50, try downloading the patch update at http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms550a.zip, and see if that makes a difference. (Sometimes people have problems making the SMSGW.INI file edits correctly. This patch changes the default back to "F5", which is the setting that works with more major operators.)

Also, make sure that your WAP push includes both text and a URL. Some phones do not like a WAP push that does not include any text (and they won't display the push).

If this doesn't get you anywhere, reply back and I'll make some more suggestions.
