Reda,

We are not a bulk SMS or MMS service provider.

To avoid any potential confusion, I should explain that the Now SMS/MMS Gateway is a software product. NowSMS is not a bulk SMS service provider, and it is not a replacement for an SMS service provider. You will need a subscription to an SMS service provider, or a GSM modem, in order to send messages with NowSMS.

The Now SMS/MMS Gateway is a middleware tool for SMS, which among other features, can be used to manage connections to one or more service providers; or to manage receiving SMS messages; or to perform message formatting for advanced message types such as WAP push, MMS, etc.

For delivery of MMS messages, NowSMS can act as an MMSC performing direct delivery of MMS messages using SMS and WAP technologies (however, the operator might block external MMSCs), or it can deliver messages through an operator MMSC.

Some background information on how MMS works, as well as explanations of how NowSMS can connect to MMS networks may be helpful.

Basically, NowSMS has two different ways to send an MMS message. It can either perform direct delivery of the MMS as an MMSC (and the operator might block access from external MMSCs), or it can route the message through an operator MMSC.

It can also deliver multimedia content via WAP push as an alternative delivery method.

The following two items on our discussion board provide info on these approaches:
