    Hi all,

    I am looking for an API or any other way through which I can read an SMS from iPhone INBOX. Actually I am trying to develop an application that will read particular tagged SMS's from the iPhone INBOX and display to the user when he runs the application.

    Anybody knows to make an applications own internal folder on iPhone? If yes, then how to store a particular SMS to that location and read when my application is opened?

    Thanx in advance, it will be gr8 if some sample code is provided.

    There is absolutely no way to read any part of any SMS message using the SDK.

    It may be possible on a jailbroken phone but most people here are only using the official SDK so if your interest lies in jailbroken apps I'd suggest finding a forum that specialises in that as you'll get more help there.
