The following code block allows you to listen for all the incoming sms in Android

public class SmsReceiver  extends BroadcastReceiver {
    private Context mContext;
    private Bundle mBundle;
    private String smsBodyStr = "", phoneNoStr = "";
    private long smsDatTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
    public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
			mContext = context;
			mBundle = intent.getExtras();  
		    if (mBundle != null){
		    	Log.e("Info","Bundle is Empty!");
		catch(Exception sgh){
			Log.e("ERROR", "Error in Init : "+sgh.toString());
	}//fn onReceive

	private void getSMSDetails(){	     
	    SmsMessage[] msgs = null;
			Object[] pdus = (Object[]) mBundle.get("pdus");
			if(pdus != null){
				msgs = new SmsMessage[pdus.length];
				Log.e("Info","pdus length : "+pdus.length);
				for(int k=0; k<msgs.length; k++){
					msgs[k] = SmsMessage.createFromPdu((byte[])pdus[k]);  
					Log.e("Info","getDisplayMessageBody : "+msgs[k].getDisplayMessageBody());
					Log.e("Info","getDisplayOriginatingAddress : "+msgs[k].getDisplayOriginatingAddress());
					Log.e("Info","getMessageBody : "+msgs[k].getMessageBody());
					Log.e("Info","getOriginatingAddress : "+msgs[k].getOriginatingAddress());
					Log.e("Info","getProtocolIdentifier : "+msgs[k].getProtocolIdentifier());
					Log.e("Info","getStatus : "+msgs[k].getStatus());
					Log.e("Info","getStatusOnIcc : "+msgs[k].getStatusOnIcc());
					Log.e("Info","getStatusOnSim : "+msgs[k].getStatusOnSim());
					smsBodyStr = msgs[k].getMessageBody().trim();
					phoneNoStr = msgs[k].getOriginatingAddress().trim();
					smsDatTime = msgs[k].getTimestampMillis();
					Log.e("Info","SMS Content : "+smsBodyStr);
					Log.e("Info","SMS Phone No : "+phoneNoStr);
					Log.e("Info","SMS Time : "+smsDatTime);
		catch(Exception sfgh){
			Log.e("ERROR", "Error in getSMSDetails : "+sfgh.toString());
	}//fn getSMSDetails
