    I believe you use getURL() and there is a special protocol for SMS/MMS. getURL() launches an external app to send message.

    use sms: or mms: protocol with getURL()

    getURL("sms:#")

    apparently you can also add a message getURL("sms:#?body=urlencoded%20message")

    use FSCommand2() to url encode your message.

    msg = "test message";
    encmsg = FSCommand2( "Escape", msg) // encode the space
    trace(encmsg);// print test%20message

    This launches the device's message app. The user will then ok and send the message. Flash cannot direclty send the message.

    This is just like flash interacting with email app on device.

    well, it is a bad news to me because FL can't send message directly
    is there any substitution?

    is it possible in the next version?

    My guess is that FlashLite does not have permission from the OS to send sms/mms.

    Another route would be to write an application that can take data from the FSCommand2 launch function within your SWF and pass that directly to the os for sms/mms send.

    I do not know how you would accomplish this. You will probably have to contact MM directly.

    so far the only way is to get a SSScript like php, asp, cfml, jsp whatever your flavor, and have it parse and send your message.
    In all reality the text messaging apps work in a similar fashion they are a just a shell.

    I forgot to mention but you all probably already know. Remoting (which is still not direct) allows you to get the message out as if it where a direct send ..its very fast(running methods as if they where within flash).

    but you wouldn't be able to use flash lite since there is not support yet for lite.

    what has to happen on the server side to send the SMS message to the phone?

    do you have to route the message through a SMS gateway?

    basically you pass the contents of what you need sent to a SS script and it sends it for you.

    In most languages you can do this in less than 10 lines of code.

    its almost identical to sending an email except you are using the users phone number and the company they use after the @ sign.

    apart from that it is really straight foward.

    have fun
