Hi Jeffrey,

Please tell me more about your application.
What exactly you want to do?
And so far how much you have done.

I have experience in designing a sms application which can be used to send
the sms in Bulk.

which was supporting all wap/gprs application as well but bearer type was

I might provide my assistance for this application.

Kind regards,
Mahendra Panpalia

> Conversely, there are some disadvantages:
>  - Higher latency
>  - Lack of features active connections offer (eg, AIM's "buddy is typing",
