I've purchased a full license as well (since 2.0), all you do is enter the beta repo and refresh, it should mark biteSMS as an update.

"Ability to easily see recent messages for a given contact in Quick Reply. So itís much easier to see the context of a new message"

This is what I'm looking forward to.

1. Launch Cydia
2. Click Manage at the bottom, then select Sources
3. Click Edit (top right) and then Add (top left)
4. Enter the address http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta5.0
5. Return to Cydia
6. Click on Changes at the bottom and you should see biteSMS available as an upgrade now.

How stable is this beta version, worth getting before the final release comes out?

To my understanding all of their betas are quite stable. I am on b1 5.0 and haven't had any issues. I've sent and received about 100 texts in the last hour.

Me too, but I can't find it, lol. How do you activate this feature in the beta? I seem to be missing it, and Quick Reply looks no different to me when I see the preview and hit "reply"...

From how it reads to me, that's not out yet in beta 1.

This pushed me over the edge. JB'd this morning; custom SMS tones and better SMS experience overall was one of the two reasons I wanted to JB, but I didn't want to have to deal with SSH'ing in just just change a couple of sounds.

Thanks, Mystikal, for posting and thanks atiffarooq for the very clear instructions on how to install the beta!

I changed my icon as well and when upgrading the icon remained the same. You're safe to upgrade.

Sorry to hijack but do you guys know if it's possible to disable or remove the missed calls notification from quick list? I already get missed call notifications with lockinfo so I don't need bitesms giving me them too. Plus there's no way to just dismiss it (at least I don't think there is) without it opening up the phone app.

When you're choosing a ringtone (default or custom), scroll all the way to the bottom. Be sure to choose the ringtone again even if you choose the default or else the settings won't be saved.

Where do you active led flash? I scrolled down in the ringtone page also and don't see it ?


Edit. Found it.

Dang, it only blinks when you're getting a text.. kinda useless. It needs to blink every few seconds you have an unread text

Bawstun
Aug 19, 2010, 06:07 PM
It might blink again during the reminder, if you have missed text reminders on.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Quick question, when I receive an SMS and the screen lights up to display the text, is there a setting anywhere in the phone or on biteSMS that allows you to change how long the screen stays active? It seems like mine does quite a long time, I'd like to knock it down to 5 seconds if possible...

What's a good place to get good SMS tones? Not song clips or movie quotes, but simple tones.

Same issue here.

yeah I listened to him and used "mytones" to make a ringtone and it put the ringtone in the native ringtone list. works when I get a text. only thing is the tone keeps playing til its over even after you reply to the text and everything. it was obnoxious so i changed it. no way my phone is going to play 30 seconds of music everytime I get a text haha.
