Problem with escape sequence in SMS text (sending via AT+CMGS)
Posted on 2004-04-15
I'm working on a sms sending program. I'm using a Siemens TC35i Cellular Engine connected with the com port. Everything works fine, but now i've encountered a strange problem:
according to the gsm specification for the 7-bit alphabet, the escape character (ordinal 27) is used as an escape to the advanced sign table (containing Euro sign etc). But the cellular engine aborts the transmission process when I send the escape character - this is a normal behaviour described in the TC35i documentation.
My question: how do I send a Euro sign in a SMS without causing the cellular engine to abort?
Thanks for your attention and help,
