mmasoud,

How many SMSC implementations actually support submit multi PDU would be the first thing to consider before implementation. I a not sure if this is a common or not a common feature in SMSC implementations.

Do you have any idea?

hi ben,

well currently the teleco companies i want to connect to STC,Zain,Mobily supports it and this is for what i know i believe others also supports it and according to my modest search on google most smpp server software is supporting it we can say  why doing it for its huge value and impact on performance since you can send in one call 254 sms imagine this value while others are thinking of multi threading and asynchrouse calls to beat the low throughput for sending sms's. 

i know ben from being in sms marketing field since 4 years now about 90% of sms credits are gone through  campaigns and bulk sending .

That makes sense if that is the case. I do have a couple of requested features to add to the library. Most of them are just quick staff to do and wouldn't require much time. I need to roll out a new release before March next year. I hope you could assist with testing.

The telcom company I connect to doesn't support submit mult

I have the ability to do this in my branch (and have done via Optus, Australia).

If you require any assistance in implementing the SUBMIT_MULTI_SM message, let me know & I'll update this thread in the New Year.
