Does a SMS app need permissions or signing to send text messages?

Does a SMS app need permissions or signing to send text messages?  I have used the SMSDemo app on my phone and it works.  I am trying to add text messaging to another app but I can't get it to send them out.  For some reason, the thread keeps dying.  Any suggestions?

Re: Does a SMS app need permissions or signing to send text messages?

If the application required signing but wasn't signed it would fail to start.

 

Application control permissions can prevent an application from sending and receiving SMS messages.  If this was the case, your application would receive a ControlledAccessException.  You can verify the application permissions by going to Options, Applications, selecting your application and choosing Edit Permission from the menu.

 

What exception do you see when your thread dies?
