Hibino: Is that a fix just for my number? I told my friend who also using Defy and she sent a message to my vodafone and it still blank.


It's a fix for any handset that sends DCS 11. If hers is doing something different (e.g. sending DCS 9) then it won't work for her. I can check her too if you PM me the number.

Edit - if hers is the one I think it is, she's sending DCS 27...
Edit 2 - 27 means 16 bit characters with message class "TE specific". Weird.

I could apply a similar fix here but it might pay to check she has no strange settings turned on in her handset first.

OK, let me know what you find. I can't really work around DCS 27 - I mean, I can do the same thing, and it will work. The DCS 11 is meaningless so changing it to 8 is fairly harmless. But DCS 27 actually means something, so I would break other things using it legitimately if I rewrote it too.

Hi Salty, sorry I don't have an internet connection at the new house yet so I can't reply last night.

Her phone is still running the stock Motorola Hong Kong version of Android 2.1-update1. In her message application I see there is an option says national language support, and if I turn this option on, I can select two method for the language support, sorry I can't remember clearly, I think one is called "shift locking method" and the other is lock *something* method. I tried both of them and send texts on her mobile to my vodafone number and seems these options doesn't help. These test texts are send between 18:33pm to 18:36pm yesterday, can you please have a look if these settings changes the coding?

The only difference I can see is her Android got the MotoBlur thing built-in in the kernel and the message application is running on the MotoBlur framework. There is no working third party roms for Defy yet :-(

Yes, those messages were all DCS 27. I can't really rewrite those I'm afraid. I don't suppose you feel like updating her phone for her? :-)

Motorola hasn't release Android 2.2 to Defy yet... :-(
Someone is working on CM7 for Defy at the moment, I will wait after it's usable and then will flash her phone, hope it won't take too long

Chinese texts to Vodafone worked fine using my Nexus S running CM7. I am now running stock ROM 2.3.4 and tested again, worked fine. Could it be a Motorola specific issue?

Yes there must be something wrong with the MotoBlur thing.

I've contact Motorola Support and here is their reply:

------------ Reply Starts -----------
We do apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you. Mobile phones in general of the same model may still have different software depending. Software of a phone is designed to meet the specifications and standards of the country and network provider where the phone was manufactured to be used.

The phone only supports DSC 27 as what you have mentioned. However, in the future update it may support what is required by your network provider. In the meantime, you may try downloading a 3rd party application from the Android market.
------------ Reply Ends ------------


I've tried Hancent SMS but they are doing the samething, so I guess I'll have to wait for the 2.2 upgrade or CM7 for Defy are completed.
