Regds,

The messages seemed to have the C in them, maybe its the online copy of the message which doesn't?

I have had the same problem. I sent an SMS yesterday and it was apparently sent as "Merry hristmas" instead of "Merry Christmas" - I was sure I had spelt Christmas correctly, but when faced with the result I thought I must indeed have omitted the "C".

On an SMS today the same thing happened :? Then I read your post and decided I'm not going crazy after all :lol: By the way, neither of the 2 SMSs had any other "c"s (upper or lower case) in them. I checked back to an earlier SMS and found a lower-case "c" but no upper case ones, so I don't know if the problem has always been there or not.

Oh good - I'm not going mental! :lol:

Confirmed here too (6121c). What a strange bug!

Ucking Onroy and his iltering ;-) :mrgreen:

As for the SMS app, I just tried it on my Windows Mobile 6 phone (under Esmertec Jbed build 20080428.2.1). I get the same death on sending issue others with WinMob get. Pity. The other app is pretty privative compared to this one.

Also, any chance the To field can be expanded to take more than 6 mobile numbers? Make it 500 Chars if possible, handy for Christmas & New Year type broadcasts.

Cheers
My deepest apologies that this affected your Christmas.

I've corrected this bug for next release, it was caused by a problem with the detection of the carriage return or newline character. You will find that all 'C' are this way at the moment, lower case 'c' isn't affected.

I don't really like the new version of this app... the contact list is now unsorted for me on my Nokia N78, and the text in the list is too big (only see 4 contacts at once). It makes it virtually impossible to find the contact I want to send it to, so I'm not using the app any more. :/

Also, I'm getting like 5 x security warnings upon loading the app... I used to only get one or two before.

Great application!

Add Nokia 6110Nav to the compatible list.

PS REALLY looking forward to not having all the keypresses for each message...

My Christmas was fine. But my hristmas felt a little short this year :P

Seriously, its fine, no need to be all apologetic. Its a beta! Was just letting you know before you get to the 1.0 release.

Cheers and thanx for the app. Still got a few bugs, but its also still better than paying 25c per msg! Not sure if this has been asked before, but any plans to open-source it and make it so people can add their own SMS gateway to it (so Exetel users could add Exetel's gateway, etc)? Maybe the wider open source community (which I'm NOT a part of as I'm not a programmer) could help out with the development. Either that, or maybe you could also make an iPhone version & sell it on the iTunes App Store for Exetel iPhone users. (also not for me, but its some $ for Exetel - esp if its got an open gateway to be input, though that might mean it'll get blocked). Also a Gphone one ...

I bet all those people that sent Merry Xmas messages instead are laughing now :P

Seriously would like to see that, I have the Pennytel app on my iPhone, quite a good app, a few bugs which are waiting for the update to be approved to sort but a really good innovative app with a lot of potential

Hi, I just thought I would point out a potential problem. When putting settings in, the username is only allowed to be 12 characters. Is this deliberate? Of course it can be avoided by creating a new API with a smaller username, but still, i thought i'd point it out.

Also whats the link for the online based SMS service, it was something like www.exetel.com.au/sendsms or something..

Cheers
