Dear helper,

I want to sent SMS to my customer. I don't want to the message to show my phone number. I want it to show my Company name as SENDER. How to do this ?

If i am not wrong, maybe this kind of sms is called FLASH SMS. But how to sent my company name as SENDER. I want to hide my phone number from being showed.

A flash SMS is an SMS that pops up on the display of the phone, but does not get saved in the inbox.

And generally on most phones, it does not tell you who the message is from.

There is a link to Flash SMS info in the following thread:

Basically, you just set the DCS to 10 (or F0) to send a "flash SMS".

Not all service providers support this, but you can definitely use it when sending over a GSM modem.

Note that it is not otherwise possible to override your sender address when sending via a GSM modem. This is a limitation of the GSM modem interface, as the operator SMSC will always apply the phone number associated with the modem as the message sender. It is not a limitation of NowSMS, but rather the GSM modem interface. To override sender address you need to send messages through an SMS service provider which supports this functionality ... when you talk about specifying your company name as the sender, this is generally referred to as "alphanumeric sender", so you would want to inquire with any providers as to whether or not they support this.
