MOBITEK Supports Wikimedia Foundation

A letter from Wikimedia Foundation:

Thank you for your invaluable gift of bringing knowledge to every human around the world.

My name is Lila Tretikov, and I’m the Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation. Over the past year, gifts like yours powered our efforts to expand the encyclopedia in 287 languages and to make it more accessible all over the world. We strive most to impact those who would not have access to education otherwise. We bring knowledge to people like Akshaya Iyengar from Solapur, India. Growing up in this small textile manufacturing town, she used Wikipedia as her primary learning source. For students in these areas, where books are scarce but mobile Internet access exists, Wikipedia is instrumental. Akshaya went on to graduate from college in India and now works as a software engineer in the United States. She credits Wikipedia with powering half of her knowledge.

What is the Operating System?
  • Windows 7
  • 32 bit
Which programming language are you using?
  • VB.net
SIM Card Used:
  • Name of Operator: ORANGE

Orange STK MENU-02

Suggested Solution no. 1  We suggest a work around:-

  • noted down all the values of the menu item that matches the menu in your mobile phone screen, refer table below
  • when you call functions of MOBITEK STK API, you only need to pass the value of the menu item and not the text of menu item as the argument/parameter
Menu Menu Item FUNCTION CALL
Recharger 128
Retour 129
Rapports 130
Option 131
Dernier trans 1 Correct -> SubMenuSelect(1)
Wrong ->  SubMenuSelect(Dernier trans)
Solde 2 SubMenuSelect(2)
Rapport jour. 3 SubMenuSelect(3)
Suggested Solution no. 2 In countries where English is not the primary language, the STK Menu may display alphanumeric string instead of English text. We provide VB.Net sample code to decode the alphanumeric string.The VB.Net Sample Code decodes the alphanumeric string into UCS2 and then decode the UCS2 to display the unicode characters. The sample code is in the MOBITEK Air-Time Reload Development Kit CD.

Example, the alphanumeric string displayed by Orange STK Menu is “810E00C4E5F2EEE9E5F220F4F2E1EEF3AE “, the VB.Net sample code will decode it and convert to “Dernier trans.”. Refer image below.
