OID_WWAN_SMS_SEND sends SMS text messages to another MB device.

Query requests are not supported.

Set requests use the NDIS_WWAN_SMS_SEND structure.

Miniport drivers process this OID asynchronously, and should return an NDIS_STATUS_INDICATION_REQUIRED provisional response to any set requests. Miniport drivers should send an NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_SMS_SEND indication when they have completed the transaction.


For more information about using this OID, see WWAN SMS Operations.

When processing this OID, miniport drivers can access the provider network, but should not access the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM card).

OID_WWAN_SMS_SEND supports sending both PDU-mode and CDMA-mode SMS text messages, depending on the capabilities of the device.

GSM-based devices are expected to support only PDU-mode SMS text messages. CDMA-based devices are expected to support only CDMA-mode SMS text messages. Miniport drivers must be able to complete set requests irrespective of SMS text message mode.

Miniport drivers should return NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED if they do not support SMS text messages, or the ability to send SMS text messages.



Available in Windows 7 and later versions of Windows.
