Can someone help me out ?
I need to send 150 SMS to our group but the Android limit is 100 per hour.

I found a solution here
http://www.mail-archive.com/android-.../msg63883.html
but really don't know how to work with sqlite. Can anyone give me a step by step manual to remove the period check and increase the number of SMS messages allowed per period ?

Thanks in advance

Why did the mods move this? This is more android development than the live wallpaper request. This at least modifys things at the OS level. Sorry ass mods.

Have you tried multiple programs? I dont even have 100 contacts to test this.

I'm no dev. but I do believe if your phone is rooted, you should be able to simply do adb pull, make the changes, then push the file back?

Leme' know if that works, just a thought

Well, I have the answer from Christopher
Quote:

Like I mentioned, needing to remove the check is probably indicative that there's a better way to do things, but that answer pretty much covered the steps:

1. Obtain a device that has root access
2. Enter the device shell (the "adb shell" command) 3. Use the command line tools to alter the settings database 4. Reboot

For more details, check Google or try asking on StackOverflow.com as it's an official Android support channel.

Trying now

I got it to work! Heres how(taken from link above):

Open Command Terminal and enter the following:
adb shell
sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db

Then you'll see: sqlite>

Then enter the following to alter the limit

INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES('sms_outgoing_check_max_count', 101);

(change 101 to your new limit)

I didnt try altering the limit so I hope it works for you guys.. but I can confirm this next one works. It completely turns off the limit altogether.

To turn off the limit enter:
INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES('sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms', 0);

It worked right away for me.. (SMS Bomber >)) Id reboot to be safe.

Ok, I"m having trouble doing this on my EVO.

Here's what I've done so far:
1. Rooted with UnrEVOked
2. Installed SDK,
3. Added to path,
4. turned on usb debugging
5. connected with usb, drives did install
6. tested with adb devices, serial showed up
7. adb shell
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
mount: Operation not permitted
8. sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
sqlite3: permission denied

Are you sure you have superuser access then? Go into terminal and type in "su" and tell me what you get.
