Will the WMA API make use of the standard native SMS'ing software on the cell phone for sending & receiving SMS through MIDP applications?

Hi,
Well not really, but if you want to send a sms to another phone which must receive it through the native sms application of that phone, you have to send it with out specifying the post name. This is clearly stated in the WMA specification. Regards..

Maybe this should go to the J2ME forum, is this SCMAD related?

I think Ransinka is confused by some other aspects, or maybe I coudln´┐Żt understand his point.

In fact you can send SMS text/binary messages between MIDP midlets,
and this is normally routed internally natively by the phone using the standard SMS protocol (which includes application messages on arbitrary ports).

SMS messages can also be addressed to end users (ie normal SMS), just by omitting the port number. Not all devices allow this though.

Regards,
Eduardo

Hi,
Well what I wanted to explain was that if the sending party doesn't specify the PORT when creating the connection string, the sent sms goes to the recievers' default sms application. Regards
