Roaming and notifyIncomingMessage

Hey I'm wondering if someone could answer this question I am facing. I have a customer who is receving phantom notifications from my application and we have narrowed it down to when she goes in and out of roaming. The notifications are fired in the notifyIncomingMessage method of the message connection listener so I guess I am wondering if this is default behavior for switching into roaming to trigger this method? She is using a tour with the stock OS. I dont have a tour or roaming spots to test this on myself so I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea.

 

Thanks,

Kyle

Re: Roaming and notifyIncomingMessage

Quite often when roaming into a different network the handset gets an SMS text message from the network advising the user of charges or how to use stuff (e.g., call-back service). This is the so-called welcome message. May be these messages are to blame here...

Re: Roaming and notifyIncomingMessage

Ok thanks, I assumed it was something like that but wasnt sure, especially because the user does not actually receive a text message as a result of the roaming.

Re: Roaming and notifyIncomingMessage

May be you should check the type of these phantom messages and only trigger your audible notification for textual messages. These phantom messages might be specal binary messages, say, with network-specific configuration information.

Re: Roaming and notifyIncomingMessage

I do type check for instance of textmessage and binarymessage, so it must be going into the binary message which I use for cdma networks
