Accessing SMS folders viz Inbox,Drafts etc
Posted: Jul 17, 2008 3:36 AM
 
How are you doing? I need an information regarding access to native SMS folders like Inbox, Drafts etc on a Blackberry device. Is there any way we can do it or there are no API’s as such.

Waiting for your reply.

 


This is not supported on BlackBerry.  You can capture messages as they arrive, but can not access SMS messages stored on the BlackBerry.

HI,

 

Kindly advice whether we would be able to open a application and show the messages as they arrive. (Using Push Registry Midlet)

The Invoke class can be use to launch the Messages applications to compose an SMS message.

 

Applications are able to capture SMS messages as they arrive.  You are able to display incoming SMS messages.

The Invoke class can create new messages - SMS, MMS, Email, etc..

 

In one of the MessageArguments constructor, it can take in a folder. I would like to ask is it possible to take in a SMS Draft folder?

 

public MessageArguments(Folder folder)

 

Parameters:
folder - The folder you would like to see in the message application.

Re: Accessing SMS folders viz Inbox,Drafts etc

I also wanna access the SMS Inbox folder and take the meassage and then analysis that message(sender's ph number, message and sender's date). How can I programmatically access or open the SMS Inbox. I used the Folder from net.rim.blackberry.api.mail and retrieve the Folder name. So , i only saw the folder name as Inbox, Outbox, Saved Messages, Unfiled Messages, Filed Messages and draft, I didn't see the SMS Inbox. How can I access SMS Inbox and take the message?

 

Thank you to every body

It is not possible to programmatically access SMS folders.  SMS messages can only be captured as they arrive.

If you cant access the text messages from inside the SMS and MMS folder, can you capature them, direct them to another folder and then view, reply, forward, etc as normal?

Re: Accessing SMS folders viz Inbox,Drafts etc

Are you planning to add in the future to API's SMS support? I mean that BlackBerry handhelds are able to read SMS messages, so I wonder, were is the problem, to give other developers access to the store were all SMS messages are store, like it is possible with e-mails?

 

Best regards

Re: Accessing SMS folders viz Inbox,Drafts etc

it was interesting the other day when I installed my application to test, and my screen was populated with all of the text messages that were currently in my inbox, which is what i'd love for it to do but know it shouldnt be able to. It only happened once and I havent been able to reproduce it (dang it), any reason this would have happened?
