Updating Meteor Message Centre Number on Android ICS


"Update Error" displayed when trying to update the SMSC number with the Meteor Message Centre number +353857000000 on Android Ice Cream Sandwich


The SMSC has to be encoded in PDU (Protocol Description Unit) format

Access the config setting by dialing *#*#4636#*#*, select Phone Information and scroll to the end of the page.
Enter the encoded Meteor Ireland message center number value: 0791538375000000 and click Update.
Encoded Format:

  • 07 = length of number in octets
  • 91 = international format (replaces the +)
  • the rest of the number in decimal semi-octets. If the number of digits is odd, an F needs to be added.

(Encoded value obtained using converter on this page)
