Increase the SMS Limit on Android

Increase the SMS Limit on Android

If you are frustrated with the 100 SMS limit per hour imposed by the Android OS, there is a tweak that you can implement to get around this.

After question posted by XDA forum members in this original thread, XDA member matthenry87 has managed to get the tweak to work.

The tweak requires entering in some commands either in a Terminal app on your Android device or from your computer using adb, which then enables you to alter the ‘sms_outgoing_check_max_count’ value from 101 to a new limit, or by removing the limit altogether by setting ‘sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’ to 0.

matthenry87 has confirmed that the second option worked immediately on his Android device.

To find more information, please visit the tweak’s thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
