    Sending SMS through port using Bulk SMS provider

    Hi,

    I have developed my application using the push registry method, i have used '16001' port for sending and receiving SMS. When I send SMS from one mobile to another it works just fine and the sms does get delivered to my midlet successfully.

    However, when I send SMS from the server using one of the Bulk SMS providers using the API exposed (in form of url) by the providers, it does not reach the mobile (not even in the native Inbox of the mobile).

    Most of the Bulk SMS providers in the url provide an option to specify mobile number e.g.
    "http://bulksms.provider.com:8080/WebSMS/SMSAPI.jsp?username=username&password
    =password&sendername=sender id&mobileno=919999999999&message=Hello"

    I change this url to reflect the port i.e.
    "http://bulksms.provider.com:8080/WebSMS/SMSAPI.jsp?username=username&password
    =password&sendername=sender id&mobileno=919999999999:16001&message=Hello"

    My question is, does sending sms using push method to a port through Bulk SMS providers work? or do I have to use a GSM modem for this?

    BTW: I live in India, and tested this using Bulk SMS providers in India.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Jalesh O.

    Hi jalesho Welcome to Forum Nokia !!

    For that you need to send the UDH along with the message . All the bulk sms provider . In case of picture and multimedia sms those sms will be sent to particular port . . The full form of UDH is user data header.

    Hi bhanuchandar,

    Thanks for your Welcome and Reply.

    I need a bit more help from you. I am sending a text SMS using the above URL of the Bulk SMS provider. The URL does not mention anything about UDH, so I do sent it with the text sms?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Jalesh O.

    Hi bhanuchandar,

    When you talk about operators are you talking about Vodafone, Airtel, etc.?
    Request you to provide me with operator names so that I can also use it.

    Thanks & Regards,
