The following code shows how to send an SMS using Qt Mobility.


Project configuration file (.Pro file)

  • Add the Qt Mobility project configuration option in the .Pro file as shown below
CONFIG += mobility
MOBILITY += messaging

The use of Messaging requires the ReadUserData and WriteUserData capabilities from the user granted category. It also requires the ReadDeviceData and WriteDeviceData capabilities from the open signed online category. Read more about Capabilities.

WriteUserData \
ReadDeviceData \


#include <qtmessaging.h>
private slots:
void messageStateChanged(QMessageServiceAction::State s);
QMessageServiceAction m_MessageServiceAction;
QMessageId m_sendId;

Source file

// connect messages state-change signal to our slot, to get notification    
connect(&m_MessageServiceAction, SIGNAL(stateChanged(QMessageServiceAction::State)), this, SLOT(messageStateChanged(QMessageServiceAction::State)));
void send_sms::QtSendSMSMessage(QString address, QString body) {
// Prepare QMessage with address & body
QMessage message;
message.setTo(QMessageAddress(address, QMessageAddress::Phone));
if (iMessageServiceAction.send(message)) {
sendId =;
else {
// message sending failed
void send_sms::messageStateChanged(QMessageServiceAction::State s) {
if (s == QMessageServiceAction::Successful) {
// message send successful
else {
// message sending failed
