Read already read SMS

Hi All,


Is it possible to programmatically read the already read messages that are present in the SMS Folder? Or is this functionality only given to application messages in the Application Message Folder?

Yes. Thanks for pointing it out Simon.


Take a look at this to get the folder that you want:


And then you can get all the message in that folder and go through them:

Re: Read already read SMS

unfortunately filiussoft is not correct.

sms messages cannot be accessed programatically, they are stored in a different inbox.

your only chance is to listen to incoming sms all the time.
