Questions and answers

Q: What kind of hardware is required to use UndeleteSMS?

A: You need a smart card reader that is compatible with the Windows smart card subsystem. You probably also need a Plug-in (GSM SIM card size) to ID-1 (regular smart card size) adapter card, so the SIM card fits into the reader physically. Myself I use a reader called ChipDrive Micro RS232 from Towitoko.

Q: My GSM SIM card reader does not work with UndeleteSMS - how come?

A: Dedicated GSM SIM card readers are usually not compatible with the Windows smart card subsystem.

Q: Where do the erased SMS's end up?

A: They are printed in the Command Prompt window.

Q: What does "message is not in default alphabet [40] cannot decode" mean?

A: It usually means that the entry is an EMS or MMS instead of an ordinary SMS.

Q: When I double-click on the file a window comes up and disappears immediately. What's wrong?

A: You must run the file from a Command Prompt.
