Native sms app deactivated when smssync is running in Kitkat


Native sms app is deactivated when I start smssync service. So I cannot send smses. Is there anyway to allow SMSsync to fetch inbox smses without deactivating my native sms app?

Edit: i’m not planning to send any smses on SMSsync.


You can’t. It’s Android way of securing SMS apps on the platform.


Can’t you? Really?

Because I tried SMS Gateway before, and it was able to send GET requests whenever an SMS was arriving without needing to be the default SMS app. So I guessed there was a way to add a hook triggered whenever a SMS was received.
