Hi All
Is it possible to hide the orginator adress when sending sms (using AT+CMGS or adl function)

Thanks

Hi,

No, I dont think so, not from the ME with standard SIM subscription.
That is something that the network takes care of but if you send your SMS by calling in to a (ISDN or analogue) SMSC via circuit switched data and transfer your SMS either via UDP or similar protocol, then there are SMSC:s that accept the message without sender address or even with a false sender address.

Another alternative is to get a deal with the network operator…, but that will likely cost some (or even alot) money…

If you send a SMS the way I described before and you leave the originator address field empty, the receiver will also see it as empty. Most mobile phones will display it as “sender unknown” or similar…
