Default Is it possible to read/write saved SMS messages?

Please Login to Remove!

The Messages application on the BlackBerry maintains a database of previously received SMS messages, in the SMS Inbox.

Is it possible to read the messages that are saved in the SMS Inbox, from a program? I'll need to delete some of the messages from the Inbox as well.

Thanks,
Paul

Since I've posted this question, I've read several other threads in this forum saying that it is not possible to read the SMS Inbox.

Does anyone have another opinion (backed by facts) on this?

Thanks,
Paul

There is no way to read an SMS in the inbox.

You can, however, add a menu item to the Messages application and retrieve an SMS form the inbox as a context object, passed in the ApplicationMenuItem.run() method.

Thanks for the reply Dougsg38p. I get the impression that this approach would pass one SMS message to me. My current application needs access to all of them, without user intervention. I also need the ability to delete them.

But thanks for the reply and for the idea. Maybe I can use it for something else in the future.
