I am preparing for the development of my first application for
BB. This application needs to have network access as well as
access to the embedded GPS perfectly without any notification to the
user, or eventually only one notification during install time. Is it
something possible to achieve in BB ? Could you please point to some documentation about it ?
Other requirements that I would like to check first if they are possible to achieve in BB:
1. This application needs to be run in background.
2. The application needs to be started during phone start (so working as a service).
3. It must be possible to receive and read SMS (perfectly using dedicated port number, not using standard Inbox).
Are all of these requirements possible to achieve on BB ? Could you please point to some documentation (or keywords) ?
Thank you and best regards,

Yes, what you describe is possible. I recommend having a look at the documentation found here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/docs/subcateg
Here are some articles that specifically address your questions.
How To - Create a Background Application
Article Number: DB-00005
How To - Configure an application to start automatically when the device is turned on
3. Also refer to the smsdemo included with the BlackBerry JDE for this point.
