Re: Sending special characters to sms using Perl
in thread Sending special characters to sms using Perl
@moritz - sorry I meant 160 characters not 16; And this is 140 bytes approximately depending on the characters in the sms. Ive implemented what my sms gateway (kannel) advises but as i explained, since these messages are forwarded separately to smsc, they are considered and MT messages and hence the subscriber gets billed for them. that's why im asking for a solution on the perl side.
