Modifying Sender ID

Post by ashish45 » Tue Aug 10, 2010 12:44 am

Is it possible to modify/set the sender ID? Say for example whena message is received by the handset it should display my name instead of the mobile number.

Hi Ash,

You can specify an Alphanumeric SrcAddr.

When you call SubmitSm make sure you set:
SrcTon = Enum_TON.Alphanumeric '(enum definition below)

Be aware that the networks support a maximum length of 11 characters for this, depending on your SMSC it will either return an error if you try to use a longer one, or it will be automatically truncated.

Public Enum Enum_TON As Byte
Unknown = CByte(0)
International = CByte(1)
National = CByte(2)
NetworkSpecific = CByte(3)
SubscriberNumber = CByte(4)
Alphanumeric = CByte(5)
Abbreviated = CByte(6)
'All other values reserved
End Enum
