Read SMS With Inbox Module

·
Free Resource
The new pys60 (1.3.1) provide 'inbox' module to read SMS.
It can also notify you when a new message arrives.

>>> import inbox
>>> i = inbox.Inbox()
>>> m = i.sms_messages()  # all message ID's
>>> i.content(m[0])     # first message
u’foobar’
>>> i.time(m[0])
1130267365.03125
>>> i.address(m[0])     # Only name is given :(
u’John Doe’
>>> i.delete(m[0])
>>>

I wish the i.address gave more detail information.
Currently, if you need the number, you need to search
the contact database.

See an example of notification callback in the documentation.
