How to delete SMS messages from SIM card with SHR, freesmartphone.org, GTA02

Posted on November 6th, 2012

Once you get a message that your SMS storage on SIM is full and you can’t receive any messages. So, you have to clear your SIM from old messages.
In this example we are using GTA02 device with SHR as of 20120730233813.
First, we open a freesmartphone docs on SIM API and have some fun.

root@om-gta02:~# mdbus2 -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device  org.freesmartphone.GSM.SIM.GetSimInfo
({'slots': <20>, 'imsi': <'XXXXXXXXXXXX'>, 'issuer': <'unknown'>, 'used': <20>, 'phonebooks': <'emergency aux:BD fixed aux:DC dialed received aux:LR aux:MT aux:AD contacts aux:SD missed aux:LM aux:AF own aux:UD'>},)

So, we are going to purge 20 messages as we have used 20 of 20 slots.
But if you want to read them first, issue the command

root@om-gta02:~# mdbus2 -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device org.freesmartphone.GSM.SIM.RetrieveMessage 1
('read', '1095', 'this is a private sms message', {'pid': <byte 0x00>, 'sri': <false>, 'rp': <false>, 'udhi': <false>, 'mms': <false>, 'dcs': <byte 0x01>, 'udl': <byte 0x46>, 'timestamp': <'12/11/06,16:16:24+16'>})

When done, delete it.

root@om-gta02:~# mdbus2 -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device  org.freesmartphone.GSM.SIM.DeleteMessage 1

Next call to GetSimInfo wil show ‘used': <19>.

When you install or uninstall application its icon will not be added/removed from your desktop until you manually restart X server.

root@om-gta02 ~ # /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop 
Stopping XServer
