So one approach might be to investigate the java implementation on other 
phones and see if you can gain access to sms for receiving and sending 
messages.  Then you could write it to test the waters on openmoko.. Then 
build a java version for other phones that done have openmoko 

Its an idea anyway.. But its only worth 1 cent since I didn't take the 
time to see if java can do that with any of the midp/whatever version 
that's common now.
