Matt, I have a question, if somebody wants to text me, and sends me a text message on my iphone it comes through the apple green SMS feature correct? Meaning they are starting the text conversation. So if i want to respond to them for free, i would have to launch FREE SMS and find their contact and send them a message. Here is my question, when they respond back to the message I just sent them using FREE SMS, will their response automatically be switched over to alert my email? Meaning it won’t come back through the apple green SMS application. Right?
correct tim, if you start it with free sms, the reply will come back to your email, but if somebody else starts it, it will go to the green apple sms.
Matt, i got this app yesterday because since i don’t have a cell phone, i wanted to be able to text all of my friends. Each time i try to send a message, it says; error: cannot connect to server or cannot get mail, what’s wrong?
The settings for aol (posting email), are on our email settings page here on the site, check them against yours
Thanks for answering that question, but what about when it says, cannot connect to server, what does that mean
it also says the connection to the server failed, what does that mean?
Cannot connect to server means your settings are wrong. Connection failed prob means the same or you might wanna increase the timeout
Im using this app and im happy with it. Im just wondering if is there any chance that you can add the Philippines carrier like Globe Telecom and Smart Telecom to the list of carriers. Thanks and hope to hear from you
I’ll look into it…
Thanks for the reply its fast. I hope that you guys can add it.
What if I don’t knows the carriers service..what impact will that have
if you don’t know the person’s carrier that you are texting, then the message will probably not go thru. you must know the person’s carrier.
I just purchased the app and was wondering which email account is the “best” to use with it. I have a gmail, a yahoo free, and an msn account. Thanks.
well it depends on your own preferences randy. if your looking for push responses and don’t mind an extra button click i would do the “Use iPhone/iPod email and have yahoo as your default account on the phone. that way you get the responses to your texts “pushed” to you via yahoo. other than that, gmail and msn are about the same, no difference in preference there, they will send from within the app and not require you to jump out and send from the email app.
I just purchased this app but it doesnt sync to my itouch because it says its not compatible !!!! whats going on please help…
Do u have the 3.0 os on your touch? If so I know it works , I have a touch with 3.0 on it
Hi I have iPhone 3Gs and set up my email
account on this software and I have also
tried my hotmail settings but when I press send
it’s says message sent but it does not get to
the recipient. I have tried sending to myself
and same problem. I am on O2 uk
so you are trying to send to what carrier?
I presume you have to use the carriers network
for example Tmobile but I can’t get the hold onto the carrier because of this bug in the software it keeps jumping back to O2 when I click send. But he is on tmobile
you have to use the person you are texting’s network….as for the bug, there is an update on the app store to fix that crashing problem.
Thanks for the info I cant however seem to find the update on the App store ??
I think I have the latest version as I only purchased it 3 days ago ??
So u r trying to send to tmobile uk? Try making sure that u r putting in the number as u would dial it locally in the uk, also try putting a zero in front of it.
No its a Virgin Mobile I can send it using your method which works but I get a Message Failed error sending message ??
My app says message failed or u get an email response saying u couldn’t send?
This is what it says:
Your message failed to send with the following error: error sending message
That means your settings are incorrect, press the power and home button when on the settings screen and sendtrue screen cap to firstname.lastname@example.org
Not sure what you mean ??
If I press the home button which I presume is the round button at the bottom of the iphone and press the power off button at the top it just switches off the phone. I have put it on the settings page when trying this so what am i doing wrong ??
Ok I have sent the image to you
Hi matt have changed the port to 25 but still not working

Is it possible for me to use this from Zimbabwe and how do I do it I’ve got an iPod and would like to send messeges to local zimbabwe cell numbers as well as numbers out of Zimbabwe , your reply would be appreciated
you could use it from zimbabwe to send to the carriers provided in the app. i don’t think u could use it to send to zimbabwe numbers easily.
hello I have purchased the app before yesterday but everytime I send a message to 0675846382 for example then it goes to the mail of a person.
then it goes to the mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
it should still go through her cell phone?
yes that will go thru as a text message to the phone.
