    AFAIK, you cannot access the contents of the Inbox from a MIDlet.

    Re: Can we access Inbox in out MIDlet?

    Java ME specifications (or more specifically Messaging API, JSR 120) do not contain methods for accessing the Inbox. It is also impossible to add new platform-related functionalities to Java ME environment, and there is no JNI available, so you cannot extend the environment to do that.

    Some handset manufacturers might provide a proprietary access to inbox, but there is no common way to achieve this from Java.

    Re: Can we access Inbox in out MIDlet?

    I was wondering.

    Is it possible to develope a native application for nokia devices for instance (not symbian ones) that does the reading part?

    in general i mean, other than J2ME is there anything i can use to develope native applications? ( i do know its possible in Symbian and PocketPC but that's not the majority).

    Because if you could develope native code that does the reading, you could use the memory or network to forward that information to the midp, couldnt you?

    check http://midpjni.com
    Basically yes, you can have the connection using sockets.

    But Hartti, in my understanding MIDPJNI is not possible with non Symbian phones like S40. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Nope, you are right. MIDPJNI workaround works only on Symbian devices. I should have been more careful when writing about it.

    Hartti, Sorry for bugging you again. I have read from a link posted in MIDPJNI.com that this workaround works in Windows Mobile and Linux devices as well.

    Re: Can we access Inbox in out MIDlet?

    Hello all,

    the MIDP JNI workaround described on http://www.midpjni.com/
    does work on non-Symbian OS's.
    The example material is just restricted to Symbian - that's all.
    I've used this commercially on Windows, too, and it's been positively tested on Linux as well. It would probably also work on Palm OS.

    It works wherever you're allowed to install native apps and can establish
    a localhost-loopback.

    Whether it's useful to you, is a different thing ;-) .

    Kind regards, Arvind.
