Send SMS text messages between two BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators

This article applies to the following:

  • BlackBerry® Smartphone Simulator


To send Short Message Service (SMS) text messages between two BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators that are running on the same computer, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator, noting the values specified in the command prompt for /sms-source-port and /sms-destination-port. These values are listed in the command that is used to start the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator. They are typically located in a batch file.
  2. Switch the source and destination port and then start another BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator instance.
  3. The second BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator will report port conflicts. Continue using the simulator because the only effect port conflicts will have is the inability to attach the debugger or use the BlackBerry® Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) Simulator with a second simulator.
  4. Send SMS text messages between the two BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators using the Messages application or your own custom application.

Note: You cannot run two instances of a BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator from the same directory. The preceding steps require you to install two BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators or that you create a copy of an existing BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator directory.

Note: The BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator might incorrectly mark the SMS text messages as “read” or “important” when using the configuration described above.
