Hello,

I trying out my TAP software on my Nextel Blackberry. (shortned)

My software: The Service:
-ATZ
-ATDT14434636683 "Connect 1200"
-<CR> ID=
-<ESC>PG1<CR> 110...Welcome to Nextel
-<STX>4434633653<CR>TEST<CR>
<ETX>368<CR> 514 Checksum error

This happens even if I put in a bogus ID number.

I tried two different software programs with the same logic and I get the same error message. I can use some canned SendTopager software and it works.

I'm at a lost for an explanation. Thanks in advance.
I also tried using just the 7 number ID and the same results.

I haven't tried those, but I don't have a subscriber service. Are you suggesting that I try them to see how far I get?

yres - even if you don't have a valid device on their network, you should get far enough through the negotiation to verify where the issue lies. EXAMPLE: If you connect to ARCH or USAMobility and use the "pin" 9991234567, you should get a rejection "Invalid ID". This is because that device does not exist and will show that your current configuration works properly

Also - when I get back to the office tomorrow - I'll try the NexTel TAP number you have with one of my NexTel devices and see if it may be on their end. If I find an issue there - I'll contact the person responsible for their messaging system and let them know

You're welcome. Which package are you using? (Notepager Pro or PageGate)

And did you use the "newest" release of the TAP protocol? IIRC, there were 4 versions over the years and there were some reasonably significant changes in the last one (last one was a long time ago though)

Please send your direct contact info off list - it MAY be something REALLY simple, like a missing <LF>

I'm using TAP Version 1.8 Feb 1997.

My work phone is 240-228-6377
Home Phone 301-262-0443
email address: tonyparreg@netscape.net

Below is a snippet of the code that send the message out through modem port.

CString message1 = "\x02";
CString message2 = "4434633653\rTEST\r";
CString message3 = "\x03";
CString message4 = "3";
CString message5 = "6";
CString message6 = "8";
CString message7 = "\r";

completeMessage = message1+message2+message3+message4
+message5+message6+message7;

I also tried to Arch and it sent back "eee" but it did not complain about the
pager id.
