When I send a relatively large number of text messages using GoSms, I get this pop up after I send a message:

enter image description here

I have seen this on other forums but I have yet to see a way to get rid of it (that is, without rooting the device, something I want to try to avoid). Anybody have any ideas to prevent this pop up from popping up?

  • This is a feature not problem. – roxan Jan 27 '13 at 13:46
  • IMHO it's a pretty stupid feature. There are a dozen other ways to exploit a user if he/she gives the correct permissions to an app without checking. It just causes extra clicks and comes without a big benefit. – Flow Jan 27 '13 at 20:41
  • @Flow: It's a good feature, maybe they could have done the implementation better. Think of apps with a piggy backed malicious sms spambot feature. That has actually already happened with pirated apps, which sent as much as they could and the user was charged. just can't find the source atm. This nag screen is the price for a sms spam free experience in the mobile world for all users. – ce4 Jan 27 '13 at 20:49

This is caused by the SMS Limit in Android.

You can install this SMS Limit Tool in XDA to get around this issue. NOTE: Your phone must be rooted. If you're feeling generous to the developer, there is a paid version in Google Play.

  • Yes, I have seen several solutions that include rooting the device. If I can avoid it, that is not something I would like to do. Is there a way to disable this feature without rooting the device? – ninge Jan 27 '13 at 20:29

    Cyanogenmod has a setting for the SMS limit. – Flow Jan 27 '13 at 20:42
  • @androidcurious Looks like there isn't, because the properties that need to be changed to fix this "issue" require root access. – geffchang Jan 27 '13 at 22:41

There's a new app on Google Play that supports even new versions of Android (I tried all the other tools but they stop working if you're on Android 4.1 or higher). It lets you change the number of messages you can send per hour (default is 30 or 100, but it lets you change that up to 2,000 per hour) of even remove the limit completely.

Google Play link: SMS Limit Unlock

  • SMS Limit Unlock won't work on 4.1 or "higher", as Marshmallow isn't supported, the upper limit is 4.1. – Zulgrib Jun 7 '17 at 18:46
