Hi,

You cannot do that in a simple 2 way command that returns a direct response.

It is however possible if you use the "redirect technique" which returns a new URL to send a message. Or instead of a redirect, your script can simply submit a new message.

The redirect technique is described here: http://www.nowsms.com/2-way-sms-returning-a-non-text-response

Or if you're using PHP, just call this SendSMS function including the DCS parameter: http://www.nowsms.com/send-sms-from-php-script-updated

Thank you for response,
but its good option if you add it in coming version as returning the same text like thank you operation successful or so again & again is disturbing & dirtying inbox so if you just add return response in flash too that will be good for, so customer also get back a confirmation sms & he also remains tension free

Default is probably best. (Phones with modem capability rarely support "Direct to Modem".)

The lost received messages, are they lost completely or do they show up in the phone inbox?

If they show up in the phone inbox but not in NowSMS ...

I haven't seen this in SonyEricsson phones (except those running Android) ... but this is a frequent problem in other phones.

Basically the SMS client on the phone removes the received SMS message so that it cannot be accessed over the modem interface.

This is why we recommend dedicated GSM modem devices (e.g., USB stick modems) instead of using a phone as a modem. With dedicated GSM modem devices, there is no phone software to get in the way.

Hello,
Thanks for reply.
I don't have issue in receiving SMS, Sometimes loss occurs in out bounding Messages, as I can see Details & successful submission in smsout log but I can't receive it on receiving device & this is mostly happening but sometimes then when I retart nowsms or so it gets okay to some extents ?
During messages loss time it don't loss overall just some of them & on different receivers

Hmm ... if the SMSOUT log says that the message has been sent, this means that the modem has confirmed that the message was sent to the network.

(It does not confirm that the message has been delivered, only that the network has accepted it.)

Restarting NowSMS should not have any effect.

I suppose it is possible that there could be a modem issue. Try editing SMSGW.INI, and under the [Modem - your modem name] section header, add the following:

DelayAfterSend=1000

This tells NowSMS to wait 1 second (1000 milliseconds) after sending a message before trying to send the next message.

Some phone modems (not dedicated modem devices, but ones that are implemented in an actual phone) have issues where they get confused by having messages sent too quickly, and a forced delay makes them more stable.
