I Want To Implement An App For Sending And Receiving SMS. I looked for 
telepathy and DBus APIs ,took a look at articles and books like 
http://people.collabora.co.uk/~danni/telepathy-book/ , but didn't help 
me much

I also read the Bluetooth example code provided in maemo.org 
documentation  like
and I figured out my application would be a lot like them, Maybe i only 
have yo use the APIs they used to get the SMS message done.

but the problem is I can't seem to find any documentation related to SMS 
handling. what parameters should I provide to the telepathy APIs to use 
the SMS sending functionality ??? (I mean the service name, dbus 
interface name and path)
what parameters should I provide for methods like :
(DBusBusType type, GError **error) // the type

dbus_g_proxy_new_for_name           (DBusGConnection <http://dbus.freedesktop.org/doc/dbus-glib/dbus-glib-DBusGConnection.html#DBusGConnection> *connection,
                                                         const char *name,
                                                         const char *path,
                                                         const char *interface); // what is the path and interface

*proxy, const char *method, GError **error, GType first_arg_type,...) // 
what is the name of the method to call in order to send sms??
..... etc

i am kind of lost and i dont't know where to find things like that

I appreciate any help
thanx in advance
