autostart my app on reboot

I have a listener app that sits in the background and listens for in and out text messages. I want my app to run even when a user reboots his/her device. How could this be done? Thanks

Re: autostart my app on reboot


Select Properties -> Application then select the
Options Auto-run on startup (This will make your application auto-run on hard reset)


If the Auto-run on startup setting is selected, specify the priority in which the application is started, in relation to other applications.


For third-party applications, you can select tier 6 or 7 (other start-up tiers are reserved for BlackBerry Applications). The default setting is 7 (lowest priority).
