Picture Messages in SMS

Embedding a bitmap picture into an SMS isn't something that Esendex directly supports, but after a customer's request I thought I'd take a few minutes to find out how to do it.

So I sent a picture message from my phone into one of our virtual mobile numbers, and I'm pretty sure I can reverse engineer the bytes that I got.

Then I found this Nokia article on it, which I should have known already as I used to have this document on my desk pretty much all the time... So it looks quite interesting.

I'll give it a go when I get 5 minutes, but the specification doesn't seem that complicated. Watch this space I guess.
