We are currently running the demo version of the software. We are planning to buy license next week only. To evaluate the client requirement, we came across one issue. We are connected to SMSC server and established the 2-way messaging service. Based on client requirement, we will receive SMS and need to send back Flash message to the user. We are able to send 2-way sms and also from the web panel can send the flash message. But return message from the 2-way communication always sending the text message. I also added the DCS flag in the ini file, but that did not help. Can you please guide how to handle the situation? This is urgently required.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Rob,

With SMS, there is no real difference between a reply to a message and a new message back to the sender.

NowSMS makes it real easy to send a reply, where you can just return the reply text as the command response.

But if you have special needs, such as a custom DCS value, then instead of returning the reply in the command , from your 2-way command script, make a new HTTP connection to the NowSMS server and submit the message with the parameters that you require (e.g., add &DCS=10 to the URL string).

If you’re working with PHP, you could use our SendSMS script at http://www.nowsms.com/doc/submitting-sms-messages/send-sms-text-message-with-php … just modify the part that builds the URL request to include the DCS value.
