You could invent your own port number. However, there is a list of restricted ports that is reserved for the system. Take a look in Appendix A.6.0 of WMA (JSR-205) for the list of reserved port numbers.

Thanks for reply ...
I know that I can invent a port, but my problem is I don't know the sender on which port is sending the message ! on which port shold I listen for it? for example if I listen on port 1234 is it OK? the sender is sending sms by his/her regular phone ( not from any j2me app ) so what can I do to recive the SMS ?
thanks again

Well if you are trying to get the sms to the J2ME application from the default sms application, I don't think it is possible, cause to register your application to listen to incoming sms you need to specify a port. Hope this helps.. Regards..
