How to send a SMS using SMSmanager in Dual SIM mobile?

Am using SMS manager to send SMS.For single SIM its works perfectly to send the SMS.but in dual SIM the SMS will not send.Is it possible to send the SMS from dual SIM,if possible means how can i select the Which SIM to send SMS.Can any one know help me to solve this issue.

Single SIM working Code

SmsManager smsManager = SmsManager.getDefault();
smsManager.sendTextMessage(ph_number, null, body, null,null);

Answer

I use this way to manage which sim to use for sending SMS even long message .. Its working on my dual sim phone Lenovo A319 (4.4.3), no need for root. its built on reflection.

Add permission:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SEND_SMS"/>

then just call that (bloody) static method like this :)

To use SIM1:

SimUtil.sendSMS(this,0,"00970XXXXXXXXX",null,"Hi Stackoverflow! its me Maher. Sent by sim1",null,null);

To use SIM2:

SimUtil.sendSMS(this,1,"00970XXXXXXXXX",null,"Hi Stackoverflow! its me Maher. Sent by sim2",null,null);

But wait...that won't work if message is longer than 160 characters.. so better way:

String textSMS;
//short <160
//    textSMS = "Hi Stackoverflow! its me Maher.";


//long >160
textSMS = "Hi Jerusalem, hi Cairo, Hi Prague, hi Baghdad, hi Riyadh, hi Jeddah, hi Dammam, hi Aleppo, hi Casablanca, hi Damascus, hi Alexandria, hi Algiers, hi Mosul, hi Basra, hi Arabia, hi Tripoli, hi Amman, hi Kuwait, hi Beirut, hi Abu Dhabi";

int simID = 0;//0:sim_1,   1:sim_2

ArrayList<String> messageList = SmsManager.getDefault().divideMessage(textSMS);
if (messageList.size() > 1) {
    SimUtil.sendMultipartTextSMS(this, simID, "00972XXXXXXXXX", null, messageList, null, null);
} else {
    SimUtil.sendSMS(this, simID, "00972XXXXXXXXX", null, textSMS, null, null);
}

so you can safely pass message body without worrying about length.

------------UPDATE 09.10.2016----------

To use PendingIntent/DeliveryIntent in MultipartMessage.. just create ArrayList with same content and pass it. Here is an implementation of creating List of PendingIntent:

final static String sSMSManagerIntentSENT = "package.DeliveryReport.SMS_SENT";
int numParts = parts.size();
ArrayList<PendingIntent> pendingIntents = new ArrayList<PendingIntent>();

for (int i = 0; i < numParts; i++) {

    Intent pendingIntent = new Intent(sSMSManagerIntentSENT); 
    //optional if you want to keep info about what action has been done for feedback or analysis later when message is sent
    pendingIntent.putExtra("package.DeliveryReport.phoneNumber", phoneNo); // receiver phoneNo
    pendingIntent.putExtra("package.DeliveryReport.textSMS", msg);// msg body
    pendingIntent.putExtra("SIM", simID); // which sim is sending this message

    pendingIntents.add(PendingIntent.getBroadcast(getActivity(), 0, pendingIntent,PendingIntent.FLAG_ONE_SHOT));
}

For deliver,just use the same approach.

------------------ Extra ------------------

I have seen that Android 22 supports multi sim cards from Android 5.1 and here is how to use it .. unfortunately I don't have device with that version for testing, so please for feedback:

SmsManager.getSmsManagerForSubscriptionId(int subscriptionId).sendTextMessage(String destinationAddress, String scAddress, String text,PendingIntent sentIntent, PendingIntent deliveryIntent);

How to get subscriptionId? to review all available subscriptionID that belong to sim card:

SubscriptionManager subscriptionManager = SubscriptionManager.from(getApplicationContext());
        List<SubscriptionInfo> subscriptionInfoList = subscriptionManager.getActiveSubscriptionInfoList();
        for (SubscriptionInfo subscriptionInfo : subscriptionInfoList) {
            int subscriptionId = subscriptionInfo.getSubscriptionId();
            Log.d("apipas","subscriptionId:"+subscriptionId);
        }

** Please note that this code is working on 5.1. if you try to run it on older version you'd get an exception that method doesn't exist.

------------UPDATE 19.8.2015----------

Information on SIMs, are located in DB: telephony.db (by default: /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db ) in table siminfo. See screenshot on table siminfo in DB on real device.

enter image description here

Fortunately there is a content provider for that:

"content://telephony/siminfo/"

So basically just query data from that table.Its important to mention that slot 0 represents SIM1, and 1 represents SIM2, and slot -1 from old/removed/replaced SIMs.

This applies on Lenovo A319 . I guess that may work on other devices. Here is the util method I use:

public static List<SimInfo> getSIMInfo(Context context) {
        List<SimInfo> simInfoList = new ArrayList<>();
        Uri URI_TELEPHONY = Uri.parse("content://telephony/siminfo/");
        Cursor c = context.getContentResolver().query(URI_TELEPHONY, null, null, null, null);
        if (c.moveToFirst()) {
            do {
                int id = c.getInt(c.getColumnIndex("_id"));
                int slot = c.getInt(c.getColumnIndex("slot"));
                String display_name = c.getString(c.getColumnIndex("display_name"));
                String icc_id = c.getString(c.getColumnIndex("icc_id"));
                SimInfo simInfo = new SimInfo(id, display_name, icc_id, slot);
                Log.d("apipas_sim_info", simInfo.toString());
                simInfoList.add(simInfo);
            } while (c.moveToNext());
        }
        c.close();

        return simInfoList;
    }

and here is the entity class SimInfo:

public class SimInfo {
    private int id_;
    private String display_name;
    private String icc_id;
    private int slot;

    public SimInfo(int id_, String display_name, String icc_id, int slot) {
        this.id_ = id_;
        this.display_name = display_name;
        this.icc_id = icc_id;
        this.slot = slot;
    }

    public int getId_() {
        return id_;
    }

    public String getDisplay_name() {
        return display_name;
    }

    public String getIcc_id() {
        return icc_id;
    }

    public int getSlot() {
        return slot;
    }

    @Override
    public String toString() {
        return "SimInfo{" +
                "id_=" + id_ +
                ", display_name='" + display_name + '\'' +
                ", icc_id='" + icc_id + '\'' +
                ", slot=" + slot +
                '}';
    }
}

Good luck,'.
