GSM charsets are mostly from MES-1, but GSM phones now prefer using a UTF-8
scheme based on Unicode, where extensions are added depending on the
national markets where they are deployed (so support for basic Arabic or
basic Hebrew is optional but now comes frequently on phones from Nokia,
Siemens, Alcatel, Sony, Motorola, only with the Unicode scheme, not in the
ITU encoding scheme).
it be nice if you can tell me more about this "UTF-8" scheme. I didn't see it
in the GSM 03.38 standard. How wide is such support? How is that supprot
through the GSM? using the "user defined" 8bits (Bit 3 2 = "0 1"? ) or something
