Good day!

I am doing an IM application on S40 using JAVA ME. I would like to know, when the application is closed, how to get notify(prompt a dialog with the message and icon on the status bar) when a new message arrives. I tried with push notification but it doesn't help me, Although I can wake my application up with the network(push with socket) or sms, I can't have either a dialog(prompt dialog when notification occurs) with an custom message nor set icon on status bar.

I believed it can only work on symbian devices because the app can run in background until when I saw it on whatsapp application for s40, I went through all the s40 api I couldn't make it.

Can someone have any idea about?
