Hello! How to send Flash message with Unicode encoding? For default Flash DCS is 0x10 for Unicode Flash is 0x18. I try dcs=10 and it work, but 18 not.

Hi Alexandre,

Per specification limitations ... in SMPP environments, you can't.

While DCS value 0x18 is correct for Unicode flash in GSM environments, it does not have a valid mapping to the SMPP data_coding parameter.

data_coding value 0x18 is reserved in SMPP.

For this reason, NowSMS changes 0x18 to 0x08 (unicode, no flash) when transmitting to SMPP. It is possible to disable this behaviour in NowSMS by setting RemapMessageClassDCS=No under an [SMPP] header in SMSGW.INI. (Note: This is a section header of [SMPP], not [SMPP - server:port].)

Chances are that your SMPP provider will have problems with a message that has this data_coding value, but perhaps it will work.
