If you would like to send and receive SMS messages over Wi-Fi, I would suggestion using Google Voice (Now integrated into Google Hangouts). You will be able to send/receive SMS free of charge (As long as you are using Wi-Fi). I have done some quick Googling, and didn't see anything that says it doesn't work in Canada. Give it a shot and see if it works for ...

I don't know about Canada, but here in the UK some carriers have apps that let you use your WiFi connection to send texts and receive using your normal phone number. I'm not sure about using this overseas but you could probably use a proxy (like Hola) if this is blocked. Even if an app exists but you cannot receive texts with it then this is generally free ...

To find all apps with a specific permission, there's a much easier way then checking them each manually: use a Permission Checker. I'd recommend taking a look at aSpotCat, which is around for quite a while (I remember it even back from Eclair in 2011 :) [] aSpotCat allows you to browse your installed apps by permissions (and more, see first screenshot). ...

Pentix: I'm not sure to be honest if it will forward to Messenger...a good question actually. But there is now a free 7 day trial version which you are of course welcome to try at no charge. What country are you in and I'll see what's going on in PlayStore. Cheers Kerryn autoforwardsms.com

Use Hike....It allows you to send text message also. At first you have limit of 20 messages but if you keep using it you can increase number of messages.

All you have to do is remove your SIM and put it in another phone with the same carrier. Leave it in the other phone for a minute or 2, then put it back in your phone and it will work again.

I especially wonder why adb backup doesn't cover this. It is not that adb backup doesn't want to cover the app com.android.providers.telephony. This app is not much different from any other system app based on its AndroidManifest.xml. The problem is with the flag its developer has declared in the manifest which as a default mechanism for some reason adb ...

The default Messaging app does not show how much characters you have typed/left for it to be sent as an SMS. So you can use a third party messaging app like Textra SMS. When you start typing the message, after typing a minimum of 22 characters, you will see a counter showing you the number of character left for it to be sent as a single message(eg. 130/1 - ...
