[Telit] What's the difference between +CMGS and #CMGS?

What's the difference between +CMGS and #CMGS?

The two commands
  • +CMGS = Send Message (ETSI GSM 07.05 – Message Sending And Writing)
  • #CMGS = Send Message (Custom AT Commands – AT Run Commands)
are basically the same. The main difference is, +CMGS requires to insert data after a prompt is received, while #CMGS does not. This makes possible to use #CMGS where +CMGS would not be such as:
  • SMSATRUN service
  • TCPATRUN service
  • EvMoni (event monitor) service

Please read note 13 in Telit_Run_AT_Remotely_Application_Note_r1.pdf:

13) AT+CMGS, AT+CMGW, AT#SEMAIL, AT#SSEND, AT#WSCRIPT and all commands that require to insert data after a prompt is received cannot be executed via SMS ATRUN, because the prompt is not sent back in an SMS response;
