A fundamental source code change in Android OS is causing BigSMS to fail on certain Jelly Bean/Kit Kat ROM's. I am actively pursuing a fix however because this is an OS change it is out of my hands. I will keep everyone updated as and when I know.
BigSMS is confirmed to work on:
1.5, 1.6, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3.x, 4.01-4.04
On Jelly Bean/KitKat it is also working on Nexus phones.
I am looking to rebuild BigSMS for Jelly Bean < phones only, which will include a new interface. This project will commence shortly. Please contact me for more details.
Thanks for looking at BigSMS (Big SMS).
This tool was designed to address the message size problem on the majority of Android ROM's.
On most un-rooted Android smartphones, a text message exceeding three times the standard length is converted into an MMS. Network providers/phone manufacturers often prevent users from accessing the menu required to change this setting. As such, owners are left with the choice of rooting their new smartphone (voiding the warranty), installing a bloated SMS client from the Android Market (offering very little extra functionality) or gritting their teeth and bearing it (paying more in the process). This app solves that problem. You can send a text message of unlimited length using the simple interface provided.
Current version: 0.6b
Unrestricted message size. Fixes "converting to multimedia message..." problem.
Contact list integration. Select recipients from your stored Android contacts.
Multiple recipients. Send BigSMS to several people at once. (No MMS conversion)
Sent Messages stored in native Android SMS Sent Folder.
Delivery Reports, that are integrated with native Android SMS system (not enabled by default).
Lightweight, fast and simple to use. Not bulky like other bloated SMS clients on Market.
Developed using standard Android API's making it compatible with almost every GSM/CDMA enabled Android device available. (1.5, 1.6, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3.x with future support for 4.x expected if problem still exists).
The tool is still in development so you can expect plenty of extra features soon.
This is my current TODO list:
Preferences to enhance user experience.
I used a Samsung Galaxy S i9000 running 2.3 Gingerbread, and the Android emulator running 1.6, 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3.1 to test and debug this software. Please comment on how it performs and looks on your device.
To enhance QWERTY keypad support, this software was tested using a HTC ChaCha but should support the HTC Desire Z and other QWERTY devices.
Please send all feature requests, comments and bug reports to email@example.com.
Sometimes get a text message and can't read it?
Scramble to find your reading glasses?
Then this app is for you. Big Text SMS.
Your texts are displayed in a big font, where you can read them without your reading glasses. And if you want to respond, do it with large letters. No glasses needed.
When a text message arrives, this app automatically pops up and shows you the message. Your messages are still available in your Messaging app, unfortunately, in a small font.
You can send all your texts to your email, via the new Export function. Or clean up your Inbox by deleting all the texts with one button.
Have your phone read out the text to you (may need to have "Text-To-Speech Extended" from Google Play installed). Or block texts from people you don't want to hear from.
If you loose your phone or would like to know where the phone is located, text your special “locate” keyword from anywhere and your phone will report it’s address.
Try it. You'll like it. It is free.
Now integrated with Sekur Me, secure login and payments support.
