SMS FORWARDER - HTTP Post
This is a unique app which will not be sold on any app store. It will only be used on a small number of phones belonging to our company.
The app is required to replace an existing PC Application which currently forwards all incoming SMS to our server via HTTP Post
The phones will be dedicated to this task.
The app can be built to work on any version of the following OS's (developer should provide a free method of installing app): I do not mind which.
• Windows Mobile
• iOS (iPhone - jailbroken)
The PDU of all incoming SMS should be forwarded using HTTP Post to a pre determined URL
Parameter name: PDUstr - a hexadecimal string representing the SMS PDU (we support
both 7bit GSM and UCS-2 encodings).
An example PDU
This message reads "Rem 230411 0029 test reminder" from mobile No "+447710124xxx".
Basically that is all that is required - everything below relates to resilience ie. Making sure that EVERY SMS is forwarded and accepted by the server.
See attachemnt for more details - please do not quote without reading attachment.
The attachment describes the need for resilience in the App ie the developer needs to anticipate circumstances that would cause SMS to not forward to the server.
When quoting you should list (or send in a PM) all possible problems that could cause ANY SMS to not be forwarded to the server, and describe how the app will deal with these possible problems to ensure that ALL SMS are actually delivered.
The specification also lists some desired features and invites the developer to include any other useful features.
When quoting you should list (or send in a PM) listing all desired features that you intend to include in the final app (including any that you feel will be useful, but not described in the Spec. Features that will help debugging and, logging and exporting SMS would be most welcome.
