it always throws me an exception,java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException String index out of range: 2

Re: Connector.open StreamConnectionNotifier always StringIndexOutOfBoundsException

What is the nature of the issue? Are there any workarounds other than asking users to upgrade their Blackberry OS?

My app is doing a Connector.Open("sms://:0") and the same exception is being thrown:

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 2
