  • Regarding your post below...  (specifically in the:   "Launch the BlackBerry simulator"   section)


Here is what my shortcut states:

@echo off
fledge.exe /app=Jvm.dll /handheld=9530 /session=9530 /app-param=DisableRegistration /app-param=JvmAlxConfigFile:9530.xml /data-port=0x4d44 /data-port=0x4d4e /pin=0x2100000A

So I'm not sure where the "/sms-source-port and /sms-destination-port" part applies.?.



You can add thes additional parameters to the command line you have above.  Just ensure that you switch the ports you use on the command prompt so that the source port of simulator A matches the destination port of simulator B.  Note that you can't run two simulators from the same directory.

  • Secondly, elsewhere you allude to:
SMS Client Application in conjunction with the SMS Demo Server

This is located in the .\JDE_INSTALL_DIR\samples\com\rim\samples\server\smsdemo.  It is nearly the same location as the device side samples, you just need to brach off to server instead of device in the second samples directory.

Re: Problem in sending SMS through simulator.



Thanks, I'll try those things out! 


Do you have any idea as to why they restrict access to the SMS store on the Blackberry?


Do you know of any alternatives?  ... somehow using the backup files, does blackberry have logs, etc?


Feel free to pm me at my user name at yahoo dot com.


Thanks in advance,

Re: Problem in sending SMS through simulator.

I don't think real SMS works on the BB Simulator, since it's on the Fledge network, not a real carrier that supports SMS.


If you want to send a real SMS message, there is a good J2ME SMS article here: 


(or Google search for "Mobile P2P messaging").


The code in Listing 1 worked nicely, and is very simple, just 5 lines. 


SMS Code:  (wrap this in a try/catch)
String addr = "sms://+123456789";
MessageConnection conn = (MessageConnection) Connector.open(addr);

TextMessage msg = (TextMessage) conn.newMessage(MessageConnection.TEXT_MESSAGE);
msg.setPayloadText("Hello SMS World");

// catch exceptions

Re: Problem in sending SMS through simulator.

this is becoming a huge problem when competing against android and windows mobile - when can RIM give us access to the inbox?  there is a very clear competitve and market share retention case for RIM to support this!

Re: Problem in sending SMS through simulator.

I agree with above poster..  We should be given access to SMS inbox and also others are providing lock/ unlock privilege which RIM is not providing us Smiley Sad...
