SMSDroid

SMSDroid


SMSDroid is a service that let's you access and send SMS messages and view contacts over a TCP socket (or via good old telnet :)). Supports password login.

I've noticed a lot of people rating this application down because they don't understand how it works, so I've added a small tutorial at the bottom.

!! Most providers do not allow this over 3G. Use WiFi. !!

Telnet in and type help to begin.

Update 0.2.0: Added getSMS and getContacts features + bugfixes.

Usage tutorial:

1) Start SMSDroid on your handset
2) Set a password
3) Start the service
4) On your windows machine hit start -> run and type in 'cmd' then click ok
5) In the new CMD window type 'telnet' followed by the ip and port show in SMSDroid. Example: 'telnet 10.0.0.52 7777'. Then hit enter. *
6) Now enter your password and when you get to the prompt enter 'help' and hit enter to get a overview of the commands available.

*) If you get a message saying telnet does not exist you're probably running Windows 7. Please google 'telnet+windows+7' for a bunch of guides on how to add telnet to W7. It's quite easy.

Great Idea So far so good great idea but having two problems. 1) It gives me my mac address instead of IP 2) after looking up my IP through a terminal app, I used putty to that IP with 7777 port and a window comes up asking for my password. I put the password in that I set on mobile and the window closes. Any thoughts? It would be nice if you got a confirmation when you clicked "Set Password!" so you know that it actually took. Oh and I'm running ICS 4.0.2 on Galaxy Nexus
