User prompted to allow SMS receive

Hi All

 

I have a user who sometimes gets the following prompt when running our app

 

 Application Permissions
  Do you want to allow the
  application XXXXX to
  act as a server?
  [ ] Do not ask for sms_receive

 

We don't see this on other phones.  Does anyone know for certain what Application Permission controls acting as a server, and in particular receiving SMS messages?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: User prompted to allow SMS receive

Of course as soon as I wrote that I realised I can easily test it, and I've discovered it is PERMISSION_INTERNET.  SMS is a well known internet protocol, so I should have guessed.

Re: User prompted to allow SMS receive

It looks like there's a fairly bad bug here.  In a lot of OS versions if you set this permission to deny all the operations are still allowed.  The only time they are blocked is if the permission is set to prompt and the user explcitly denies the actions.
