Read Message

# import module
import inbox
i = inbox.Inbox()
m = i.sms_messages() # all message ID's
content_m=i.content(m[0]) # first message
print i.time(m[0]) # arrive time
print i.address(m[0]) # Only name is given :(

Notification on New Message

  • The following function will five a note whenever a new message will arrive. If we use globalui module then we will have a global notification, irrespective of our application being in background.
# import modules
import inbox
import appuifw
import e32
# Give note on new message
def message(msgid):
box = inbox.Inbox()
appuifw.note(u"A new message:\n %s" % box.content(msgid))
# bind inbox to new message event
box = inbox.Inbox()
# Wait for Exit
app_lock = e32.Ao_lock()
