Re: [SMS] Which method to get incoming sms sender number?

None of these. npi btw is a single digit indicator of the set of types of numbers that an address is drawn from so not of interest to you here.

 

Take a look at my SmsMessageService application which does what you want. This line in particular shows you how to get the sender number:

All the best
