ReplyMethodID

Type:Integer

This parameter sets the originator value of your message to being either your choice of 11 characters, your choice of phone number (long number or shortcode), or one of the SMS Gateway’s reply-path phone numbers, used to provide a reply service to your outbound message.

This parameter operates in conjunction with the originator and replyData parameter settings.

The settings associated with this parameter are:

  1. 1 No reply option, send 11 characters: the message will be sent with your originator value, and therefore cannot be replied to. The replyData parameter should be left empty.
  2. 2 Reply to Email: the message originator will be automatically set to one of the SMS Gateway’s reply-path numbers, and any message replies will be sent to your nominated email address, set in the replyData parameter. The originator parameter should be left empty.
  3. 3 Reply to Web Service: the message originator will be automatically set to one of the SMS Gateway’s reply-path numbers, and any message reply will be stored by the SMS Gateway until retrieved with the GetSMSReply method. The originator and replyData parameters should be left empty.
  4. 4 No reply option, send phone number: the message will be sent with your chosen phone number, taken from your originator setting. Any reply will be sent directly to the chosen phone number, without passing through the SMS Gateway. The replyData parameter should be left empty. If the originator is a leased inbound number, GetSMSInbound will need to be used to retrieve replies.
  5. 5 Reply to URL: the message originator will be automatically set to one of the SMS Gateway’s reply-path numbers, and any message reply will be posted to your nominated web page URL, set in the replyData parameter. The originator parameter should be left empty. The reply will be posted in the following format:
    http://mycompany.co.uk?originator=%2b447787654321&destination=%2b44771234678&date=01%2f01%2f2011&time=09%3a24%3a43&body=Test&clientmessagereference=myuniquereference&rbid=
  6. 6 Reserved for future use
  7. 7 No reply option, send shortcode: the message will be sent with your chosen shortcode, taken from your originator setting. Any reply will be considered as a new inbound message sent to the shortcode, which should be retrieved using either with the GetPremiumSMSInbound method, or by having the shortcode set up to post inbound messages to a given web page URL. The replyData parameter should be left empty.
