I want a quick solution for this, it is very urgent for me.

Actually I am getting arabic in Windows-1256 format when passing to asp script using 2-way sms. And from there i am passing it to third party. But third party wants this in utf8 format. can you plz help me.

Is there any quick solution, because by default nowsms converting it to windows-1256 format. I want it to utf-format.

I can change files dynamically at receipt of sms. so if any parameter i can include in file to do this.

If you take out the SMSGW.INI "ReceiveSMSCharset=" parameter, then UTF-8 is used when executing a 2-way command.

However, NowSMS will use the same character set for all 2-way commands.
