View Full Version : Mobile sms - send and receive

01-05-2009, 06:03 AM
First Appology if I have posted it in wrong board.

I need some suggestions/resources/solutions on my new project.

I am working on a project ( haven't started coding yet) a desktop application,where I will receive sms on my mobile phone, the code will then read the sms. extract some keywords from it and then store it in database. I will also need to store the full received sms to some database.

The code then will search some stuff in the database against the sms keywords that I will extract from received sms and will then again automatically reply to the sender with some information through sms only.

I am not sure with which programming language this is possible and how I can achive this.

If anybody here has done this before then please do let me know your guidance or else if you are confortable then please do send me code.

Thanks and looking forward for getting response.

I'm thinking other server side languages forum. Maybe.

I know one person who wrote this using Perl I believe it was. Other than that, I've only handled this through web services and Java. This is not quite the same though, since you don't actually dial the number, you connect to it like a web site. The one my buddy did using perl actually sent it via text messages.

Other than that I'm sorry to say my mobile development is a little behind.
