How do I send a single SMS?

  1. Launch Connect from your CLX Portal.
  2. Expand the Batch SMS menu item by clicking on the downward arrow to the right of Batch SMS.
  3. Click Single SMS.
  4. Enter the recipients number, this must be in international format (447887123456).
  5. Enter an Originator (who the sent message appears from), this can be a name (11 alphanumeric characters) or a number (16 digits).
  6. Message Encoding determines what character set you wish to send messages in. Latin Alphabet (GSM-7) covers languages such as English, French and German. Other Alphabets (UCS2) cover languages such as Russian, Greek and Arabic, where the character set is completely different. You will need to convert messages into UCS2 yourself if necessary, and enter this in the message body for it to be delivered in the correct language on the handset.
  7. Enter your message in the Text box.
