Hello Patrick,

The first thing you can try is to set the 'MaxShortCodeLength' parameter in the advanced settings of the GSM Modem Gateway to '6'. This will tell the GSM Modem Gateway that number 266845 is a short code (with number type 'Network specific') and not a regular phone number.

Not all mobile network accept network specific numbers as short codes, if the above solution does not work you can try to use another prefix in front of the phone number. Diafaan SMS Server supports the prefixes '+' (international), '#' (national) and '*' (unknown).

Regards, Henk

Hi, I am trying to send a SMS message to 266845 number, it is an automated bank service to manage cheque accounts

But no matter how I try, it will get to my GMS Modem Emulator on Android it will allways append a plus sign so the phonel number so it is actually sent to +266845

How can I avoid the plus sign at the beggining of the phone number ?
