Been reading through the documentation and forums here and I still can't get a good understanding of what to do. What I would like to do simply is to send an SMS (text based) to a Symbian application running on a handset, basically the SMS is to sync data with the local database. I want to make sure the user does not see the SMS. What I can gather is that there are two ways to do this:
1. Have the handset application listen to a specific port and pull SMS's that way. If so, is this easy on the SMSC/SMPP side to send SMS's to a different port?
2. Have the handset application parse all incoming SMS to see if it is application related. Will I have problems with these messages going to the inbox?
Am I correct that these are the two ways to do this? Is there something else I should be doing? Thanks in advance for the help.
