Can not start the SMS listener on my app, since another app running on the device.

Hi,

 

      How to override the existing sms listener to receiving sms messages. ?

      is it possible to receive all SMS messages by all the SMS listeners in different applications ?

 

Thanks,
Subbanaidu.

Only one applicaiton can listen for SMS. The first one who registers the listener wins, all others get an error.

 

AFAIK, the only work around is to catch the SMS by using the datagram method.
