SMS System Message Type using UDH

According to the knowledge base article "How To - Use SMS to notify an application" (http://tinyurl.com/2p28do), as well as posts in the old forum, SMS messages can be prevented from appearing in the InBox by configuring "the SMS message so that the message type is a system message".

 

Can the system message type be defined in the UDH of the SMS message?

Re: SMS System Message Type using UDH

Yes, I had read the discussion you mentioned, the article I referred to is the same article referenced in the discussion. From that discussion and others it seems that in order to by-pass the Inbox, we either have to set a port number or define the SMS message as type: system message.

 

I've tried setting the port number with mixed results because of potentially carrier differences. I wish to try using the system message type and was wondering if it's possible to set using UDH.
