Hi Johnny,

I do not see any encoding errors on the NowSMS side.

When configured to use the GSM (or default) character set for an SMPP connection, NowSMS encodes the vertical bar character | as 0x1B 0x40. That is the correct encoding. (Enable the SMPPDEBUG.LOG or do a Wireshark trace, and this is what you will see.)

Of possibly related note ... 0x40 is the character encoding for @ in the iso-8859-1 character set, and 0x00 is the character encoding for @ in the GSM character set. So it looks like the SMSC is expecting iso-8859-1 input and generating GSM character set output.

Can you send the @ symbol ok? If you cannot send @ successfully, you should change your SMSC character set to iso-8859-1 (or "iso-8859-1 as default" ... both settings use the same character set, the "as default" version leaves data_coding at 0 instead of 3).

If you can send @ OK, then do not change the character setting. Instead it is likely that your SMSC has an error handling this character.
