Question about how SMS messages work.  Does the software stack have to
perform a a seperate action to retrieve an inbound sms message, or is
the message text actually part of the alert from the gsm chip?  If a
seperate action has to be taken to retrieve the sms message, then do
the phone carriers charge for the message regardless if it is
If the inbound sms alert contains a source phone number, then it would
be a nice option for the messaging app to accept only messages from
people in your address book (ie., whitelisting).  Could be an
effective way to block sms spams.
