I am Phani Kumar,working for Software Paradigms Ltd , at India.

I have downloaded NowSMS,currently evaluating the product features to
send barcode via sms.

Our main requirements to send Barcode messages as EMS to different
mobiles and service providers.

I am able to send Text messages but faced problem in sending Barcode as
EMS message.

I am trying to send bar code as an EMS picture message with dimension
multiples of 8(8*8,16*8),

Is there any mechanism to avoid this limitation,I am expecting to send
EMS picture message with any dimension not only with multiples of 8.

We are succeeded in sending bar code as EMS picture message using Nokia
Smart Message format to Nokia mobiles and we are able to see Bar code

We faced problem to send same message as an EMS format to Samsung
phones,bar code image is not displayed on Samsung mobile.

We are using Samsung galaxy, galaxypop, galaxywhite mobiles for testing

Could you please guide us is there any configurations changes are
required to do this activity and Samsung support EMS messages ?

Appreciate you help and Thanks in Advance,

Hi Phani,

Unfortunately, EMS has become a forgotten/legacy format. Neither Android nor the iPhone support it. (Samsung Galaxy devices are, of course, Android based.)

The argument that these environments offer is that EMS is obsolete, and you should use MMS instead.

Of course, it is a lot more difficult (and expensive) for content providers to use MMS in most countries.

What most real world solutions use is a text message that includes a HTTP link to open the bar code in a browser.

It is neither pretty nor elegant, but it offers wider compatibility ... assuming your subscribers have internet service on their phone. (Good assumption in mature markets, not in many developing markets.)
