Some time ago, I posted an app that would raise the limit on the number of SMS Messages that could be sent before seeing the ever-annoying warning dialog that you text too much. However, this app only worked on JellyBean 4.1 and was very ROM specific, so I set out to improve upon the idea a little.

The "new" app will work on ANY (to my knowledge) rooted device running Android 4.0+ and allows you to set the limits yourself (within reason). Basically, just load it up, set your limits, click apply, and reboot. The settings will stick unless you wipe data or factory reset your device and I included an option to return to defaults if need be.

There is a known problem with the reboot binary on some HTC devices not playing well, so you may have to reboot manually. Please let me know if you encounter any other problems with it and I'll work through them.

You can grab the apk from HERE. There is an identical donate version available from the market if you're feeling generous.

If GB has a limit, it's handled differently and this won't work on it.

Thanks.
Do you know if it's possible to just read the "sms_outgoing_check_max_count" actual value without root?

I'm guessing probably not. The value isn't present in the database unless it is changed from the default. Depending on the device, Android version, and carrier, the default could be stored anywhere in XML or code, so I can't even venture a guess as to the values.

Thank you.
So basically SMS Apps can't do anything about it until google decides to let the default value be customizable (like in cyanogenmod).
Hope they change their mind.
