Entering the SMS center access phone number in Winpager

Question

Previously I would enter the SMS center access phone number as part of the settings for the service provider. I can no longer see the field in the settings dialog box. How do I set the phone number?

Answer

The field for entering the SMS center access phone number has been removed from the settings dialog box for two service providers:

  • Generic GSM Terminal
  • Siemens M20/MC35/TC35 Terminal

Instead, you must manually enter the phone number:

  1. Start the Windows HyperTerminal program. The program is activated by selecting Start - Programs - Accessories - Communications - HyperTerminal.
  2. Type the following commands:

          AT&F
          AT+CMGF=1
          AT+CSCA=PHONENUMBER          

          where PHONENUMBER is the phone number of the SMS center.
   3. Close the HyperTerminal program.
   4. Start the Winpager program
