Good evening arewamobilers, have you ever heard of possibility to remotely control your android phone using some sms commands. Such controllable tasks include; reading incoming text messages, accessing call logs, turning ringer on/off and many other things.

This is archievable through the use of a very nice android application called Agastya which you need to install on your android phone.

How does this app works
You send an SMS command from any phone be it yours or friend’s own to your own phone in a format to be outlined below in this post. The app reacts accordingly. For instance, a command like “ringer” would turn on the ring while “silent” would put the phone into silent mode.

Here’s a complete list of SMS commands that you can try on your Android phone:

SILENT – Turn off the phone’s ringer RINGER – Turn on the ringer
IMEI – Get the IMEI number of your phone
LAST MESSAGES – Retrieve the last 5 text messages received on your phone LAST CALLS – Know the last 5 missed/
received/dialed numbers
– Fetch the contact number of a person from the address book.
