    Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    Thank You
    wireless messaging ap - WMA is used to send and receive SMS/MMS messages via J2me code while
    Push Registry is a part of WMA API's only.
    public class PushRegistry
    extends java.lang.Object
    The PushRegistry maintains a list of inbound connections. An application can register the inbound connections with an entry in the application descriptor file or dynamically by calling the registerConnection method.

    While an application is running, it is responsible for all I/O operations associated with the inbound connection. When the application is not running, the application management software(AMS) listens for inbound notification requests. When a notification arrives for a registered MIDlet, the AMS will start the MIDlet via the normal invocation of MIDlet.startApp method.

    Check the WMA API document http://library.forum.nokia.com/topic...w-summary.html

    Thus you need to both of these together on S60 for receiving SMS when the application is running and even when the application is not running.

    Yes, their are many mobile apps in the market like mobile payment apps, aggregated IM and push email clients all of which use SMS to invoke the app in case of incoming events like payment request, IM or email.

    These are generally subscription based apps, with a fixed monthly cost and yes they exist in the market very much. These types of app are also popular in case of Field force solutions, Sales force solutions and enterprise work flows.

    You can very well try it and if you share the problem you are trying to resolve with this solution, we can recommend the best option.

    Obopay was first developed in J2me with S60 device 6600 as the reference, check m.obopay.com

    In which country you are in ?, check the IM client on your device provided by your Operator - it must be having SMS push.

    I've never seen a mobile IM client using SMS... it would be far too expensive. Most run continuously, and maintain an open socket connection to the service (or poll using HTTP).

    This depends on the emulator. Most emulators will support sending emulated SMS between two emulator sessions. Check your emulator's documentation for "messaging". You cannot send SMS between phone and emulator. Once you want to test on a live handset, you will need two handsets.

    Push registry is generally avoided for commercial applications, because of the security issues. The app is unlikely to launch without specific authorization from the user, making it a little pointless.

    I don't mean that it's insecure. I mean that the phone's security policy might make it ask the user to confirm every time the application starts. Try it on your device and see what happens. The user experience is not usually the one you want. Strictly, I should say thay the problem is one of user experience, caused by security.

    What banking apps do you think use PushRegistry?

    That's not really "banking", and I have no idea if it uses PushRegistry. I don't see why it would. What would be the purpose?
