my smsc is smpp connection. I submit sms via url. I submit the long ascii text, but in the SMS Web log show the DCS = 8 that is binary message. My url don't enter the parameter DCS. When I try to add DCS=0, the result is unchanged. How can I do ?

I find your system automatically detect our message is binary , not long text. But the actual is long text.
What URL parameters to indicate the right message type ? I try to set Binary=0, DCS=0 and charset=iso-8859-1, not work.

Another Problem is that I set these parameters to SMSGW.ini under SMPP section

TextDCS=0
UnicodeDCS=8

This is not work. DCS for TEXT is still 3.

Hi Peter,

I need some examples of the text that you are submitting (preferably direct from the SMSOUT-yyyymmdd.LOG) in order to answer any questions. I can tell you that if DCS=8, this indicates you are using characters outside of the GSM character set, which can only be represented by using Unicode. See http://www.nowsms.com/long-sms-text-messages-and-the-160-character-limit

If DCS=3, this is because you have configured the SMSC character set in NowSMS to be iso-8859-1. (If you want to use ISO-8859-1 but with DCS=0, select iso-8859-1 as default.). Note that even if you configure the SMSC charset as iso-8859-1, only the core GSM/3GPP SMSC characters are available without Unicode formatting, as that is GSM/3GPP charset is what is used over the air. An SMSC that uses iso-8859-1 cannot add extra characters to the actual over the air SMS protocol.

Have you tried iso-8859-1 as a default? (this is a separate option from iso-8859-1)

If the version you are running does not have this option, see the SMSCCharsetDefault=Yes setting discussion here: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/23323.html
