- Can't Receive '$' Sign in SMS Message

rate this thread
and then sends it as an sms text message to a mobile number. It's
working well enough, except I can't seem to get currency signs in the
sms; all other characters are ok.
This is the original string
$string = "You have $5!";
This is how I'm encoding it:
$string = urlencode(utf8_encode($string));
This is how it's appearing on my mobile:
"You have 5!";
I've tried other mobile numbers as well, so it doesn't seem to be a
problem with the way my phone handles the dollar sign. Has anyone
encountered a similar problem, and if so how did you resolve it?
