    You can use a service like Twilio.com to send an SMS message directly from your app, and then configure your Twilio number to ignore any replies.

    Sending message to a receiver, after reading it, they can reply, how to disable the reply, it can be read only mode.

    Is there a function inside the b4a that will embed the code for that, so that the receiver is read only.

    Like the flash message in sms...?

    Thanks

    If I now understand your question better, it is impossible to prevent a user from "sending" a reply to your SMS because the user's SMS app is not your app, so you have no control on what they/it can do. However, you can simply "ignore" any replies if you use the Twilio API.

    And to my knowledge there is no "method" to make SMS messages read only. But, if you can find another app that can do that using some undocumented SMS commands, I would be very interested in knowing about it!
