I've been banging my head without a success to get my new GSM shield send and receive sms messages with extended characters such as ä, ö, and å. If I send message string like 'ÄäÖöÅå Hello World!' it looks like whats on the attachment on this post on my phone. And when I send the same string from my phone to the shield, it prints out like '[{\|�� Hello World!'.

I'm using the standard sending and receiving examples from GSM library with the only little addition that I change the charset to 8859-1 with a command (same with the GSM charset).

theGSM3ShieldV1ModemCore.print("AT+CSCS=\"8859-1\"\r");

Has anyone else battled with the same problem?

Cheers,

Thanks, inspired by that post I did similar thing and just did String.replace for those accented characters. Now it works from the shield to my phone, just need to get same for the other way around.
