Parsing Text Messages with a Background Process

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a quick question. I was just wondering if it was feasible to create a program with J2ME that would go on mobile phones, that would run in the background and parse all incoming text messages looking for a specific string? Thanks in advance.

Not with J2ME. It has no mechanism to capture the "normal" text messages (those that would arrive in your inbox). It can only listen for text messages sent specifically to an application (messages that have a port number).

You could do it on phones that have Symbian or BREW (although BREW is a closed platform, so you need to be a registered developer, which costs money, to actually get something on a real device and not an emulator). 99% sure that Windows Mobile phones would support this too.
