I know we can send a SMS message to a specific number, but there is a simple question
How to read an incoming SMS by Flash lite application?

I want to develop an application that sends and receives SMSs. It must read Text & Sender phone number. Is it possible to do it?


Best Regards

I am not sure about this, but to do some R&D on this one, we need the target FlashLite version you are using ?

"Can anyone provide me a sample fla file if possible."

It's not that simple.

First you need to tell us which phone you are targeting.
Because every Windows Mobile phone or Symbian phone behaves differently with Flash Lite.

I know absolutely no way to "read" sms messages using Flash Lite on Windows phones (janus-flash project did not even allow this, only "send sms").

However, Nokia developed many Flash Lite 3.x API for Symbian 5th phones, and I think they gave methods in Flash Lite to read/send sms.

Check this for instance : http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/GPS_API_in_S60_3rd_Edition


The only way to do this easily would be (on Windows Mobile only) to :
- use XMLSocket and host a local server reading sms and sending them to Flash Lite. (It was Janus-flash solution btw)
