SMS Utilities API's are useful to sending and receiving SMS using sockets. It is particlularly very useful to send/listen SMS silently, to listen SMS on particlular port and to listen SMS based on some pattern matching. This article demonstrates the use of SMS Utilities API to send SMS and listen SMS silently with pattern matching (## here). Note that this API, SMS Utilities API, is not part of the public SDK. So you have to download it from SDK API Plug-in before using it. Furthermore, the author added a working demo project, which can be used for more detailed study of new opportunities for various kinds of experiments.


I tried to install SilentSMS on Nokia 6120c. However, I get an error message "Certificate Error. Contact the application supplier". Anyone know why?

Furthermore, because I cannot test this app, I would like to ask whether SilentSMS can wake up the app when it received a message.



I tried the Send code but it does not work. An error on the bind method call method is received. The error number is "KErrPermissionDenied = -46 "that is described like " An operation cannot be performed due to a potential security violation. ". Is there something obvious thing that a quite new s60 developer should know regarding permission in order to send sms through Socket ?? Thanks in advance

In our country we can reload phone balance from special sims. When that sim is inserted to the phone there is an option to send SMS to the service provider with the request to recharge. In this case we can't see any recipient's phone number. We have to use that option to send sms. For that I need to develop an PC application to send sms via that option. I was able to write C# application to send sms to given recipient number.

But my problem is how to use above option in the sim to send sms via my pc appliction. Please help me to develop my application.

The article was written in 2007 and I very much doubt the author will still be monitoring it. I don't understand your question either. What I suggest is that you ask a very specific question in this discussion board - no one will answer "please help me develop my app", but they will answer specific questions like "I've tried to send an SMS from my device but I can't because X, Y, Z" or "Is it possible to access SIM data from a PC - if so, can you give me an idea of where I can find documentation on the different parts of the solution - talking to the device etc.
