Great to see you here! :D

The "Re-Edit" menu option after sending a SMS could be used if you wanted to continue your message to the same mobile number.
I would really like to see an option to extend the character limit, it can be very annoying to have 3 incoming messages when they could have in effect come in as one. May be have it as an option in the settings and by default it could be limited to 160 characters, if extended SMS option is selected a warning can be shown to confirm the option.

I found several times that a service provider can fail and this causes the user to retype and send a normal SMS via GSM. I wanted to make sure this doesn't happen as it is frustrating for the user. If you really want an option to turn this feature off, I guess I can provide it and only try the VOIP provider list as priority 1.
I agree, I like the failover option, but OPTIONS are very important to make any application popular.

Save yourself a lot of agro and use ColbySMS. It is far superior to ExeSMS IMHO, and it is still being actively developed.

Hi,

Have i overlooked something?

Hey i would personally like to thank the developer of this application, it works great.
I have tested it on the Nokia e63, and it works perfectly,
The only thing bad about this that i can say is that it asks for permission to use network and wlan like four times before it is happy.
Also when i wanted to send the address to my phone from exetel member facilities, it didn't send the message, which is weird. However i just went to sent sms in exetel and found the address.
Anyway thanks!!
:D :D

Anyone know of a similar app only for Windows Mobile 6/6.5? Namely the Xperia. Been trying the Exetel one and it freezes on sending. Just sits there.

OK. Tried it. It works, but also throws up an error or two. One of them says'Exetel reports an error'. It still works however :)

Is development of the ExeSMS java app continuing? I just upgraded from a Nokia N80 to an E72 and now ExeSMS doesn't work for me on this device - when i send a message it just says "sending message" and freezes.

Colby SMS is much better, it has more redundancy built into it.

I havent tried ColbySMS yet but ExeSMS works on my HTC Hero (android 1.5/sense ui). Requested to send the ExeSMS app via email in the members page. Executed the jar file and it installed the app onto my SD Card. To launch ExeSMS, I first load the Java app on the Hero then browse to the app installed on the SD Card.

Seems to work at a basic level (including most of the options except 'sent messages' and 'minimise') but thats all the functionality I need. Was able to successfully send an sms even though I get the error message "Connection failure. Please check the connection" every time. It will also ask permision to access this and that on app start for security purposes but that's bearable. The Message box size is initially small but automatically expands as more text is entered.
