Send tab character in SMS via curl TRB140

Hi Community members

I am successfully using curl from the Linux command line to send SMS from a Teltonika TRB140.
E.g. curl -X GET “
How would I code for a tab character please? I can encode spaces as %20 - but %09 (which I think is for tab) comes out as a question mark in the received text.
(I don’t necessarily think tab characters will be sent often, I am just interested in how it could be done).
Thanks in advance


There are no TABs for SMS messages. Please, take a look here.

There’s a table of characters on that page as well. For example, you can use ‘%0A’ for a new line.

Kind Regards,
