Default Convert Unicoded text into corresponding character returns by getPayLoadText() method

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I want to read and parse the data when SMS message is arrived or sent. i read successfully by the method getPayloadText() of TextMessage class when message is in text format and less then 160 characters.

but if the message contians special characters like '&','_' etc it gives me its unicode character

for e.g it returns '\u0011' of '_' and '\u0000' of '@' character respectively.

please help me how do i convert it into its corresponding character becuase i don't know how many special characters will be in message.

Please let me know any sample code or tutorial

Thanks
Sohail

There is a special String class constructor that accepts a byte[] array and an encoding string, like "UTF-8".

public String(byte[] bytes,
String enc)
throws UnsupportedEncodingException

Take a look at the String class in the API reference.

Thanks, but i have already converted string from getPayloadText() method. if i convert with getBytes("UTF-8"), it will convert the converted character (returns from getPayloadtext() like (test\u0011sohail) into bytes.it doesn't converted into its actual representation of Unicode character.

so i want the routine which will convert unicode character into UTF-8 string

Regards
Sohail
