Is there a predefined field for Web UI which can be used to send SMS with alternate reply address?

Of course, I could use the User Data Header field and enter

"<UDHlength>22<length_of_IE22><address length><TOA (incl. TON and NPI)><address>" , but I also would like to define the alternate reply address via web UI like doing it for sender address or recipient address without having to convert it to PDU including length TON and NPI value. So that the user only has to enter the alternate reply address and it is converted to correct User Data Header.

Is there such a functionality?

Kind regards,

Hi Andy,

No, we don't have any tools for doing this.

It could probably be done relatively easy with some Javascript on a web form, at least if the functionality is restricted to standard phone numbers. Alphanumerics would be more difficult to implement (and technically couldn't be replied to anyway).

I'll try to look into this next week, as I don't think I'll have any time to explore this until then.

Thanks for your reply.

For first testing I will use a constant UDH.
Next step is some JavaScript, at least for numerical TONs.
