SMPP parameters we need to change in order to deliver SMS correctly.

Hi,

You need to send in Unicode format (data_coding = 8 in SMPP).


Of course, the receiving phones need to be able to support these characters also. Verify that the phones can send Urdu messages to each other, so that you know they support this character set.

I can't help you with the programming part ... but I can tell you that data_coding=8 with the short_message encoded using UCS2 (UTF-16) is the correct method.

Maybe you've got a byte order problem ... when you encode UCS2, it is high byte, then low byte.

So if you are sending the character 0627, it is the 06 byte followed by the 27 byte.


You could always try the NowSMS trial, and do test messages from the web interface.

I will ask our sales dept to send you pricing info.

But to be honest my intent was not to try to sell you product, I was suggesting this to give you another way to test that you can actually send these characters with your SMPP connection.

NowSMS does require a Windows PC to run on and it exposes HTTP (and other) APIs: http://www.nowsms.com/faq/api
