Re: Unread SMS / Catch SMS

I was able to "listen" to incoming SMS messages with the simulator.


Basically I fired up the "Server" side application, and used the listen thread side (copy & paste of the smsdemo). The only difference was that I set the _openstring to "sms://:0", this seemed to do the trick for me.


 Nb. It didn't matter what destination # I was sending to - it looks like the sms server just echos it back.

ZERO is the default SMS port. If you open the connection on port 0, it will read SMS that are suppose to appear in the Inbox.


 Use of "sms://:" with Connector.open() will cause the error  "java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal opening string"

 Use of "sms://"  with Connector.open() will cause the error  "Operation not permitted on a Client Connection"

 Use of "sms://:0" with Connector.open() will work as desired.

Re: Unread SMS / Catch SMS

Any ideas as to why BlackBerry will not allow us access to the SMS msg stores?.?
