- Uses the iPhone and iPod Touch's email notification to let you know when someone has replied. If you have push email enabled, the notifications are instantaneous, just like regular SMS. Other applications require you to manually check for replies constantly throughout the day, defeating the purpose of using SMS at all.
- Supports portrait or landscape orientations.
- Can automatically locate the carrier for your contacts' mobile numbers.
- Uses your existing email accounts, so there's no extra account to manage and password to memorize.
- Send to as many people as you want. Some other applications will cause your account to be flagged as a SPAMMER if you send to as few as 5 people.
- Integrated with your iPhone and iPod Touch's contacts database, so all your contacts are in one place.
Free yourself from the restrictions of traditional SMS messaging. Freedom SMS will use your existing Mail configuration to send SMS messages to anyone in your contacts list. Did you already run through your allotment of SMS messages this month? Or perhaps you have an iPod Touch and want to have the ability to SMS your friends? Then Freedom SMS is the perfect application for you!
Freedom SMS works in both landscape or portrait mode to suit whichever typing style you prefer. Simply rotate it into your preferred orientation. The application will adjust automatically!
Simply choose the contact and type in your message. Freedom SMS will try to find the carrier for your contact's mobile number by connecting to our web service. This web service will be continually updated with the latest carrier data. Messages will be sent to that carrier's email gateway using your iPhone or iPod Touch's email settings. You don't need to know the recipient's carrier or need to set up your email settings especially for this app! And because it uses email, you won't be charged any SMS fees!
Replies will be sent to your email account so you can continue the conversation. This also means that the iPhone or iPod Touch will notify you of replies using the email notification icon. If you have push email enabled, then you will be notified of replies instantly! Some other SMS applications require that you manually check for new messages over and over again, which defeats the purpose of using SMS at all.
The following carrier SMS gateways are supported and more will be added soon:
- AT&T Wireless
- Boost Mobile
- Verizon Wireless
- Virgin Mobile
- Metro PCS
- US Cellular
- Cricket Communications
- Cellular South
- Centennial Wireless
* Freedom SMS will identify the original carrier that issued the mobile number. If that number has since been ported to another carrier, then this information may not be accurate. In this case, you can manually select the carrier to use instead.
* This application only supports mobile numbers in the United States.
* A data connection is required in order to lookup the carrier for a mobile number.
