Decoding PDU SMS


I am developing a server application of communications for a service of Management of Fleets by means of integrated modules GSM/GPRS and GPS.

For the communication by GSM with the mobile equipment we are using a modem GT47 of Sony-Ericsson.  

The problem that I have is that I need aid to be able to obtain the data of the SMS that receives the modem GT47, that is connected through port COM1 the server.  

I am using a developed API here in Spain, but a function does not exist to collect the data in Text format, but that only exists the possibility of doing it in PDU format.  

The server is being developed in C++, and very would be thanked for if they indicated the algorithm to me necessary to code and decode messages of PDU format to Text format.  

Thank you very much, and I wait for anxious your answer.

Hi ,
     Interestingly this was the first assignment that was given to me when I started my professional career some 4 years back. I was given this page where the algo is explained and I needed to code it in C.... Well here is the link for you and you can make your own Class for Parsing this data. It is really simple and it took me roughly 2 days to complete it when I was fresh out of University.....

and this page which carries almost the same example....

Here is a VBScript that you can use to verify your algorithm.

PDU SPY is a free of charge tool to read SMS in PDU mode from SIM card, but for coding of PDU SMS as well. It works all popular mobile phones and it is tested with the GSM module listed on http://www.gsm-modem.de/pcs-module.html as well.
