Default Problem with getMIMEType() method of MessagePart class

Please Login to Remove!

I want to get the MIME type of message but unable to get the expected result. When i call getMIMEType() method it always return application/vnd.wap.mms-message but it shd be text/plain Or image/png or ... something like that .Moreover getMessageParts() method always return single element of MessagePart in the array also if the MMS contain more then one part in it. Can anybody tell me where i m wrong . i m trying the following code:

MultipartMessage msg =(MultipartMessage)o;

if (msg != null)
String senderAddress = msg.getAddress();

Dialog.alert("sender address: " + title + " " + senderAddress);

String subject = msg.getSubject();
Dialog.alert("subject: " + subject );
String date = msg.getTimestamp().toString();
Dialog.alert("Date: " + date );
MessagePart[] parts = msg.getMessageParts();
if (parts != null)
for (int i = 0; i < 1; i++)
MessagePart mp = parts[i];
String mimeType = mp.getMIMEType();
Dialog.alert("MIME Type: " + mimeType);
String contentLocation = mp.getContentLocation();
Dialog.alert("Location : " + contentLocation);
byte[] ba = mp.getContent();
if (mimeType.equals("image/png"))
Dialog.alert("im here");
Image image = Image.createImage(ba, 0, ba.length);
Dialog.alert("im here");
catch (IllegalArgumentException iae)
} else if (mimeType.equals("image/gif")) { Dialog.alert("GIF Image" ); }
else if (mimeType.equals("image/bmp")) { Dialog.alert("BMP Image" ); }
else if (mimeType.equals("text/plain")) { Dialog.alert("Plain Text" ); }
else { Dialog.alert("Nothing." ); }

I m using JDK 4.5 and Device Software version 4.5.... Kindly reply as soon as possible.
