Ozeki NG SMS Gateway

Mobile message type specification - OMA OTA settings SMS
(SMS message type, SMS message format)


OMA OTA settings refer to the setting up of new services, such as GPRS, MMS and Instant Messaging for an existing subscriber of a mobile phone network, and any gateways for standard Internet chat or mail services. Network operators typically send these settings to the subscriber's handset using SMS or WAP as mobile operating systems accept.

Why it is convenient

If you do not want to set the browser of every phone manually to enable it to connect to the network or to specify the e-mail settings, this message type can be used to send the required settings. This way, the necessary parameters can be set by just pressing one or two buttons.
