Hi,
We have installed NowSMS Lite with a single modem. We notice that the date (RcvDate) in the SMSIN call back is invalid in some cases for incoming messages. Is it a bug or ???

Hi Mathew,

For messages received via a USB modem, we are pulling the receive @@MSGDATE@@ and @@MSGTIME@@ from the service center timestamp (SCTS) value in the received SMS PDU.

In your case, this SCTS in the message is not actually a time stamp.

For other interfaces, @@MSGDATE@@ and @@MSGTIME@@ are the date/time that NowSMS received the message. Also, for delivery reports, there is no SCTS value.

Unfortunately, there is no setting to ignore the SCTS. So, we need to produce an update to add such a setting, or perhaps we should always base @@MSGDATE@@ and @@MSGTIME@@ on NowSMS receive time, and only provide SCTS by a separate variable.

Hi Mathew,

We have posted an update to set @@MSGDATE@@ and @@MSGTIME@@ with NowSMS receive time, instead of SCTS.

The update is here: http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms20150313.zip
