SMS reception ack // Webworks app

Webworks app for OS 7 and for OS 10.x


The app sends an sms and it is required to get an acknowledge for the reception. It is needed that the app could check if the sms was properly delivered. Is there a way ? how? Any code example?

Re: SMS reception ack // Webworks app

You could use Push on the receiving end to initiate an acknowledgement assuming you are communicating between BlackBerry 10 devices. That being said, you would need to contain some sort of identifier in the SMS to know where to send the response.

SMS by default is not a reliable transport system, so you'll need to build something around it.
