  have a SMSReceiver class that needs to pass the phone number and
message to another class. Which works but when I call that class I
need the function to read preference to compare if it needs to execute
another function. So here is the code.


public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

//--get the SMS message passed in --
Bundle bundle = intent.getExtras();
SmsMessage[] msgs = null;
String str = "";
String from;
String mymsg;

if (bundle != null)
//---retrieve the sms message received--
Object[] pdus = (Object[]) bundle.get("pdus");
msgs = new SmsMessage[pdus.length];
for (int i=0; i<msgs.length; i++){
msgs[i] =
str += "Sms from " +
from = msgs[i].getOriginatingAddress();
str += " :";
str += msgs[i].getMessageBody().toString();
mymsg = msgs[i].getMessageBody().toString();
str += "\n";

Log.d("SMSReceiver from", from);
Log.d("SMSReceiver mymsg", mymsg);

//calling the class
caralarm ca = new caralarm();
ca.texttest(from, mymsg);

//display the new sms message
Toast.makeText(context, str, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();



public void texttest(String number, String message){

//These cause nullpointer exceptions
//SharedPreferences SPNumber = getSharedPreferences("Number",
//SharedPreferences SPPassword = getSharedPreferences("Password",
//SharedPreferences SPOften = getSharedPreferences("Often",

//Number = SPNumber.getString("Number", "NullNumber");
//Password = SPPassword.getString("Password", "NullPassword");
//Often = SPOften.getString("Often", "NullOften");

//need to read number from preferences
//these only work if Settings2 was loaded before this is called
Number = Settings2.Number;
Password = Settings2.Password;
Often = Settings2.Often;

String brokenmsg[];
brokenmsg = message.split(";");
int brokenmsglength = brokenmsg.length;

if (number == Number){
Log.d ("texttest", "good number");
Log.d ("texttest", "bad number");

//not firing off even if it is the same
if (message.toString() == "Alert"){
Log.d ("message", "YAY!! in Alert");
String ns = Context.NOTIFI
