Difference in Different ways to listen for SMS messages



In KB Article Number: DB-00579,3 methods are listed for listening to SMS messages.  What are the main differences between the3 methods?


I am pretty sure they all work with J2ME/MIDlets and BB/UiApplications - I want to implement an SMSListener for the purpose of just being notiied if the system is recieveing an SMS.

It seems implementing MessageListener and using notifyIncomingMessage(MessageConnection mc) is the best way to do this?


The other two run a for(;Smiley Wink loop so they don't seem to be optimized for "always on" functionality.


Thank you for any help.
