    I use to be able to send flash messages from my N95 8gb Symbian and was wondering if anybody else is looking for a similar app for their lumia 1520 WP8 perhaps some clever developer out there will help us solve this problem.

    I guess either the op means sending a .SWF file using messaging or just sending animated GIF images something similar to this:


    Anyways, animated gifs are supported only on IE i guess since they don't animate in the messaging app, nor in the pictures app

    no no no.
    flash sms is nothing to do with flash or .swf
    flash sms is a sms, which is displayed completely and directly on ur screen, rather that going in inbox or threads. then when u hit the back key, it gets deleted automatically. u won't find it in inbox or threads. some older phones shown receiving flash sms in their logs, but most of the phones, cannot.
    thus, flash sms is not traceable once deleted.

    I miss this cool trick that my 5130 can do and my Lumia 720 cannot.

    I don't think Micorosft knows what a flash message is, even though they have an article about it on their website:
    FAQ - How do I create and send flash messages on my Nokia device? - Microsoft - USA

    I wish this could work.
    Isn't there any app to make this happen? Or even a website. Maybe i could try to make an app to use the website.
