FreeSMS Suggestions

We want feedback from our rabid fan base! If you have a suggestion for Free SMS, please post it here as a comment and we will consider it!

Suggestions Received:

1. Free SMS gets replies in the App
2. Save contact’s carriers so when you pick a contact you have already used with the app it auto picks the carrier for you so you don’t have to remember each contact’s carrier
3. Ability to send to International carriers
4. Ability to send same message to multiple users at the same time.

Keep them coming!!!

    Hi guys is there any chance that u will include Philippines carrier like Globe Telecom and Smart Telecom. Thanks

    • Becky says:

      Yeah I was wondering if we can send to the philippines?

    • Matt says:

      Becky, sorry for the mixup, we have an update that will add smart telecom pending with the app store, we updated the description thinking it wouldn’t change until the update posted, but obviously we were wrong on that!!! Hang in there and u should have smart telecom maybe by end of week!

      Matt

    • Kim says:

      Hi Matt,

      I thought that Philippines is already supported based on the description that’s why I purchased this app. 😦 I really wish that Globe Telecom and Smart Telecom will be added soon. I purchased this app just for international texting. Looking forward to this support.

      Thanks much!

    • Matt says:

      Kim there has been a pending update for over a week, waiting on apple to approve it, it will add smart telecom when approved, still looking for info on globe telecom.

      Thanks,
      Matt

    • Kim says:

      Oh ok. Hopefully, you’ll be able to add Globe Telecom as well. Thanks!

    Hey matt ur app is awesome and i luv it the only thing is can u make it so u can attach pictures to ur messages? Also above it says u can receive replies in the app. I dont see that. Can u help. Thanks.

    • Matt says:

      You can’t receive replies in the app, those always come back to your email. We r considering adding mms capabilities, but it might be a little while…

    hey matt when I try to send an SMS message to the cincinnati bell carrier it says invalid recipient adress. what should I do ? other then that the app is awesome!

  5. joe says:

    I didn’t get an email it just says unable to send. am I supposed to put a 1 before the 10 digit number?

    • Matt says:

      you didn’t get an email response? did you get a “Message Failed” dialog? if so your settings are incorrect, what email provider are you trying to use? what are your current settings?

      thanks,
      matt

  6. george says:

    could you add greek carriers?

  7. joe says:

    I’m using the email set up on my ipod. it’s my screen name e mail. I have set my settings to the use default email set up on iPod setting thing.

    • Matt says:

      Ok so you have smtp and pop setup for your acct on your iPod, who is the email service with?

      Matt

    • Matt says:

      Just to clarify joe, you can send to other carriers besides cincy right??

  8. Duke says:

    Why can’t I get my yahoo email to work? I don’t have the PLUS account. Anyway around it?

    • Matt says:

      no way around it, unless you enable the “use iphone/ipod email” switch and have yahoo as your default email on the iphone/ipod.

      matt

  9. Duke says:

    Got it to work now. Thanks.

    Another question. Would love to be able to reply to a SMS reply that came to my yahoo mail by hitting reply. The problem is that it’s tough to get rid of previous msgs. So my response would not be too lengthy. Any suggestion?

    • Matt says:

      duke,

      There is a new version of the iPhone sdk due out anytime(june 6th?), that will include cut and paste, so in theory you should be able to cut out the extra stuff you don’t want pretty soon..

      Matt

  10. joe says:

    Yes I can.

  11. Gavin says:

    Hi Matt,
    Could you add Virgin Mobile Canada as a carrier.
    Thanks,
    Gavin

    • Matt says:

      Gavin, we actually already submitted an update to add koodo, telus, and virgin mobile, look for it mid next week or whenever apple finally approves it…

      thanks,
      Matt

  12. Gavin says:

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for your prompt response. I will keep looking for it.
    Thanks,
    Gavin

    • Matt says:

      gavin, the update got declined, i’m rewriting it a little bit and will be resubmitting it. i’ll try to let you know when it’s out!

      apple’s process is so random. i didn’t change any of the networking code, since the initial release, and have done 4 updates previously, but they are now complaining about it, go figure.

  13. dave says:

    Hi there, great idea!! Will u be adding o2 as a carrier? 😉

    • Matt says:

      O2 for what country? And what format r there phone numbers, ie how many digits?

      Thanks,
      Matt

    • dave says:

      Hi there fast response! 😉 I use o2 uk there 11 digit numbers.. If you could also add orange and vodaphone (11 digit) I could contact all my freinds 😉

    • Matt says:

      that’s 11 digit without a country code or anything right? i’ll see what i can do for o2, orange, and vodaphone, shouldn’t be much of a problem, although getting an update out to the app store seems to be a problem these days, apple is going crazy on apps right now…

      but look for it, it will come!!

      matt

    • Matt says:

      i know this might seem odd, but it would help to have some numbers to test with? i could give you a method to test if you wanted, just let me know.

      thanks,
      matt

    • dave says:

      Hi, yes it’s 11 digits without the country code (0044) for the uk right? I can give u my number to test with but can I give it to you privately? Regards

    • Matt says:

      absolutely, email the number and carrier to hfidevelopmentsupport@gmail.com and i’ll do a test text, just tell them to respond to it and let me know they got it.

      thanks,
      matt

  18. Mary says:

    I am trying to send text to someone in Canada. His service provider is Telus but when I type in his number it automatically goes to the Rogers setting. When I try to scroll down and change it back it completely closes out. What can I do to make it work? or what am I doing wrong?

    • Matt says:

      Mary, what version are you using? We thought we fixed that crashing problem with our latest release…

      Thanks,
      Matt
