Need to add the feature "Alpha Tag"s

It is good idea! You can need to add the “Alpha Tags” function to convert the number to a word! What do you say to Anton about this proposal?

What is “Alpha Tags” ? Can you describe more about that.

anton

Alpha tags are a way for you to give your SMS messages a unique ‘sender’ name, which can include digits, text, and some special character

You meant “Alphanumeric sender ID” for outgoing SMS ? Its there since ages ago.

Please tell me how to set it up! Thank you, Anton!

You need to use gateway that have the ability to use alphanumeric sender ID, gammu can’t do that

anton

With Dev Gateway I can use alphanumeric sender ID and what would you advise? Thank you very much!

It works on Kannel please check ton an npi setting with carrier.

Thanks for the tip, I will study

Hi Steven!
I specify in kannel.conf
source-addr-ton = 5
source-addr-npi = 0
directives in SMSC configuration field.

But can’t specify and not understand how configure carrier. Tell me, please. Thanks in advance.

Please share the kannel log.

Thanks for you reply Steven!

What was done:

  1. After the TON/NPI respectively 5/0 directives were established, I changed the phone number of the modem (my-number) from the SMSC group to character set and it is shows in log file:

2018-08-28 08:00:44 Sent SMS [SMSC:gsm1] [SVC:foo] [ACT:admin] [BINF:] [FID:177] [META:] [from:SMSd] [to:+998935217698] [flags:-1:0:-1:-1:27] [msg:11:asdf @admin] [udh:0:]
2018-08-28 08:00:44 Receive DLR [SMSC:gsm1] [SVC:foo] [ACT:] [BINF:] [FID:177] [META:] [from:SMSd] [to:+998935217698] [flags:-1:-1:-1:-1:8] [msg:4:ACK/] [udh:0:]

  1. In Kannel gateway config in PlaySMS configuration menu, where Additional URL parameter specify next equation from=SMSd;

  2. Change the Default sender ID in PlaySMS main configuration from “1234” to “SMSd”.

All options did not yield results. SMS comes from modem number +99893xxxxxxxx :frowning: instead, I would like to receive from “SMSd”. Are you have any ideas Steven?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,
Jamshid

As far as I know this can only be achieved if you have a SMSC connection to your upstream provider when using a modem you cannot change the sender ID.

Thanks for answering. Yes, you are right, I have a modem connection. It’s sad that it’s impossible to implement this via a modem. If it’s not difficult, can you give a direction, what are we talking about?
Thank you.

Regards,
Jamshid.
