BB system sms

I've been pouring over this forum and documentation on how to prevent our text messages from persisting in the standard inbox.  Unlike android there is no api to access the sms inbox and cdma providers don't support port directed sms.  I have seen this KB on formatting a sms as a system message. But this is specifically for server to bb device - we don't have a server in the mix and all messages are BB to BB.  how would we format the sms in this scenario?  Or are they finally going to open up their API?

Re: BB system sms

you could listen for incoming messages and pull out sms to store them in your app
