SMS message send to the device as BREW wake-up message

Forums:

Hello, I am currently looking at an client/server
application where I have to push content out the the
BREW-based client application. To do so, I need to
use SMS to "wake" the application up so that a
client-initiated socket connection can be made back to
the application server and data can be streamed or downloaded.
(I'm using Verizon Wireless server)

However, I understand that the public SMTP gateways
that US carriers use prepends a header that the BREW
interprets as a non-BREW SMS message and passes the
message back to the handset's handler rather than
allowing BREW to pass to the application.

What this means is that there is no way to get an SMS
message through the public gateway to a BREW app.

Has anyone addressed this issue and have to found a
workaround or solution. Has anyone approached a US
carrier about direct connection to their SMSC?

Thank you.

There are other ways.
You can use a CDMA (or GSM from a carrier that has interconnect with Verizon) modem to send the SMS using AT commands. Haven't tried this on Verizon but it should work as long as they are not doing something completely insane in their network.

If you send email to eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%79%6f%75%72%70%68%6f%6e%65%40%76%74%65%78%74%2e%63%6f%6d%22%20%63%6c%61%73%73%3d%22%62%62%2d%65%6d%61%69%6c%22%3e%79%6f%75%72%70%68%6f%6e%65%40%76%74%65%78%74%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')), in in your email body if you specify BREW SMS formatted string with class id, it should work. It works for me without any problem.

For using SMS to wake-up applications on Verizon, you should first contact Verizon. From there, they will get you in touch with M7 Networks who is providing this service.
