Hi all,

I hope I'm in the right forum for this, but I've been searching for info for about 2 weeks now and I'm unable to find anything on the internet.

I'm trying to send a settings sms to a mobile phone, like the ones your phone operators can send to you, to configure your WAP settings for you (amongst other things). I have the protocols working and I can connect to a SMSC that will send the file to the phones.

My problem is that, I am unable to find the format (or any specifications for that matter) of the settings sms file. When the operators usually send you the settings file, it is just a normal sms as far as I can tell, but is it in XML (or WBXML?)... and most importantly, where can I find the information that details what fields configure what.

As I said, it's mainly to configure someone's wap or mms settings for them and sending them the sms to configure it remotely.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Andre

You might try IS-683, in the 3GPD block for information on over-the-air setting of information like NAI, password etc. I'm not sure about WAP gateway address etc, I don't think that's there.

There are also data-based approaches, see 3GPP2 C.S0040 and OMA.

I would guess that in general you would need to be working with an operator - they're unlikely to be wanting just anyone to change settings on any of their subscribers' phones, so there will be security mechanisms in place to stop unauthorized changes.
