change Outgoing SMS address



I recently managed to change an SMS incoming address so that if A receives an SMS from B, I can change the SMS address so it looks as C send it. I managed to do this with datagrams...

Did any of you managed to change the SMS outgoing address? Either by datagrams, or it doesn't matter how. I know it's a BB policy and bla, bla, bla ...


I know there is for 4.6 a send listener interface that let's you do the trick, but for general devices??


You can reply even as personal message.


Best regards!

Re: change Outgoing SMS address

this is not possible. it would be a violation of the blackberry security concept.
you can implement your own sms editor and send the sms whereever you want.

if a user wants to send a sms to a certain address it should be send to this address, not to any other. especially not to a service that charges money...
