From G.P. Imports:
Major NEW features for the Deluxe Version. You can send infinite sms.
1. You can send SMS messages to multiple recipients at the same time (you save money and time).
2. You can save all provider information, application has its own contacts book, so you don't have to type the provider information every time you send an SMS, you just do it the first time you use that individual contact.
3. Several pre-made sentences, perfect when you are short of time. You can also add/edit/remove additional sentences.
4. Unlike other applications, If a user has several phone lines you can select the one you want.
5. Major Provider Update, 11 more.
Attention US users: We now provide a web tool to locate the provider of any US user (Updated information unlike other applications).
Many users including those with long nails or large fingers on the i-phone were having difficulty writing SMS messages since the regular applications do not provide a landscape keyboard, those times are over. Now you can use our application to send SMS email messages!
You can select the recipient from your address book or you can manually type the number, very easy to use. Also, the recipient will be able to reply to your message from their phone as a regular text message.
The current SMS application that comes with the iphone does not let you send messages using a large/landscape keyboard. This application will let you write and send SMS messages using a big landscape keyboard. Furthermore, the message that you send from our application will not be billed as an SMS message, making it FREE! (please read further for details about the cost).
We have compiled a LARGE list of providers/carriers from where you can choose the recipients one, making it easier for you to send SMS messages.
Please go to http://www.gp-imports.com/sms/ there is a link to a forum so we can all share our experience setting up providers.
Most carriers permit the recipient of the sms message to answer it in the usual way.
For the recipient it works as a regular SMS message (billed according to his/her plan).
Most carriers limit this kind of message to 180/200 characters.
Sending this message is absolutely FREE; you will not be charged for sending it as a text message on your phone bill, since its being sent as an email from your phone.
This application will let you add/edit/delete carriers as you find the need. We've compiled a large list of providers and included them into this application.
Keep in mind some of the contacts in our list can change from time to time so its important to keep your database updated. We will update the carriers available database at least every 30 days and we will be adding at least 200 carriers more soon. Our updates will not erase your previous additions to the list.
If by any chance you don't see the carrier of your recipient you can call their customer service number and they will provide this information to you or the recipient. All providers are not the same, some of them have a specific format for the message, some of them require the user to activate the service (normally at no cost).
