    Your MIDlet cannot receive messages sent to the default port. It can only receive messages sent to a specific port.

    What is SMSC? That is the problem with designing your own apps to use SMS. You basically have to program both sides of the communication yourself to use a specific port number.

    I don't think you can. Unless you write an application / service to send SMS messages to a specific port, they will always go to the default port (which your MIDlet will not have access to). If you have input / control over the operator you might be able to change they application they use to send the SMS to send it to a specific port.

    Re: SMS default port

    1.i don't understand that you said "Unless you write an application / service to send SMS messages to a specific port, they will always go to the default port" .if i specific service to send SMS port why they will go to default port.
    2. You mean if i know server (sending sms)port ,i will listen to sms before it go to inbox. right?

    (^^) thank you

    Re: SMS default port

    Hi,

    As john Says, you can not Register a java application on the "default" SMS port.

    you can however register a java application to recieve SMS messages that are sent to a specific port.

    you can then send your messages to the specific port you have registerd your application on, by setting the port in the UDH ( User Data Header ) of a binary SMS.

    you can send a binary SMS using a GSM modem, or if you have an SMPP conncetion to your carriers SMSC ( provided they dont block the port) or if you have an SMS agrigator that allows sending of binary messages

    Hope this helps

    I use the simplewire sdk. How can I encode the detination port as part of the header (UDH) of my binary message?

    I try sending SMS to my a number through my netowrk but it seems my network is resend the sms to the default port on the GSM.

    How do I hardcode the destination port into my simplewire sdk without the network operator changin the destination port
