Can older Samsung MIDP 2 devices receive SMS?

Hi,

I been trying now for 2 days to get the Samsung X450 to receive an SMS. I have used different approaches and I have debugged to see if it is making a MessageConnection, if its calling notifyIncomingMessage, if it calls connection.receive() and after getting no positive results I am under the impression that its not possible. i have also sent it binary and text messages but the app never got them.

Can someone confirm that this is the case?
This is really time consuming and an acknowledgement would enable me to move onto other devices.

Or does anyone have any other approach to try?

I've had confirmation from Samsung.

In order to be able to receive an sms on the Samsung X450 (and probably similar devices) the MIDlet has to have a certificate signed under the Operator Domain.

Thanks to Sunho at Samsung for this information.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
