How to get all SMS messages ?

Hi all,

    I want to get all SMS messages in my app, but i can only find the API about getting mails.

    I've search the forum and know the method of listening SMS messages but not get all SMS messages in the INBOX.

    Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Re: How to get all SMS messages ?

I am Afraid you cannot access the SMS inbox and neither you can manipulate the messages once they reach the inbox.
However, as you already mentioned, you can listen to them on their way to Inbox.

I would get clarification form the developers as to whether they can in fact backup SMS before the application was installed.  The other parts of the description are very careful to point out that the application processes incoming and outgoing messages.

Re: How to get all SMS messages ?

you can access sms messages when they are received and store them in your own app.

if you have further questions please open a new thread, posting in solved threads should not be done.
