Default Why can't we do this for deleting SMS?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I am awaiting my signing key to test this, but would this not work for deleting certain SMS messages... For example, I have an app that listens for all SMS messages... Ones from "JOE" will trigger me to do something and then I'd like to delete those messages... All others leave alone. So why can't I do the following:
Code:
Store store = Session.getDefaultInstance().getStore();
Folder[] folders = store.list(Folder.INBOX);
Folder inbox = folders[0];
Message[] msgs = inbox.getMessages();
for( int i = 0; i < msgs.length; i++ ){
    if( msgs[i].getFrom().getAddr().equals("JOE") ){
        inbox.deleteMessage( msgs[i] );
        break;
    }
}
Is there something I am missing, or shouldn't that work?

You'll need to wait until you can sign your app, otherwise you should receive a ControlledAccessException since you're using controlled APIs.

Your code works fine on my hardware after I signed it, BTW.

I got my signing key, but when I get the "Inbox" folder, and perform a getMessages(), the size is zero. Is this why we can't delete messages? Can we not even read messages in the inbox?
