Bug: Acccess Connection > SMS > send to *100#

Problem belongs to the ThinkVintage software "Access Connections". Can't send a SMS to the following number: *100# Only "0-9" and "+-" are allowed. The number "*100#" is important for prepaid cards to check the actual credit.

Kindly install the latest version of access connection and then check.

Uninstall the existing software then restart and install the latest version of the Access Connection

Latest version is installed: 5.85 (83c771ww) When sending a SMS to *100# the error message says: "For phone numbers one numbers, blank spaces and the signs -,+, ( and ) allowed". No "*" and "#" is allowed.

I think you may misunderstanding the purpose of numbers such as *100#.   The number is interpreted by your service provider as a command sequence and processed accordingly.

 

The command sequences are intended for direct entry from the keyboard of a phone, and are not "dialable numbers" per se.  To send an SMS a dialable number must be entered in the "to" field, so SMS is inherently not suitable for sending command sequences.

 

If you need to send a command sequence, you would need to use the AT comand set dialing capabilities of the 3G modem.


Cheers,
