is there a way to schedule a text message

i was going to put in app section, but there are no quality apps that i found for doing this.

does anyone know how to send a sms message at a scheduled time? ie a happy birthday at 12am to someone?

i tried textlater - and when the person recieves the text it comes from a 000-0001 number, kinda defeats the purpose.

Just download biteSMS...but it might take you a very long time to find it in the app store

(needs jailbreak, sorry)

You can have your iPhone text yourself with the Calendar app, and then forward the text when it does so

Yes, there an app called "textlater" that allows you to schedule text messages. I use it all the time and usually just to send myself reminders.

I'm sure it's possible for a developer to create such an app that uses your actual phone number via the SMS app. I'd imagine you would have to be jailbroken though...

Coincidentally, there is an article "How to Turn Your Android Phone into a Fully-Automated Superphone" on Gizmodo today that describes an application which does just that and a lot more. Check it out for some interesting ideas.

Bit of an old thread that was bumped, but just use google calendar to do it. You can set texts as notifications for any event.

I wanted to chime in that Gliph recently added scheduled message sending, but it is only to other Gliph users. So you can't use it to schedule SMS yet.

http://blog.gli.ph/2012/11/06/gliph-...ivery-options/

I'd love to hear feedback from some of the people who want to see a better SMS scheduler.

Has anyone seen a scheduling interface they really like? Are 'happy birthday' reminders the #1 thing that people want SMS scheduling for?

There are apps on Android called Future SMS and SMS Scheduler. You might want to check if there is an iOS version (sorry don't have an iPhone yet, so can't check)

I'm using autoMessage for iPhone, pretty useful for automatic and repetitive SMS.

Almost completely and utterly useless.
The only thing different than the iOS 6+ built in "Reminders" or "Calendar" app is that it opens upp the message application with the text and a pre-populated "To:" field when the deadline is met.

Don't think we'll see a scheduled text message app within ios7 if not jailbroken.
One feature i really miss from my old windows mobile

True, but Apploe & Android do not allow to send text messages without taping the "Send"-Button, so this kind of app is the only solution to have something similar like an automatic scheduled text message.

And this also will not change for sure.

Here I was thinking texting was impersonal, and you people even want to automate THAT?

This world isn't going anywhere "in a hand basket"... it's already THERE.

You are completely wrong wrt to android. It allows sending of sms/mms/email without needing for users to press button.

I pick up my wife regularly. I have an app that sends an sms automatically when my car is near the pickup point. I don't even need to touch my phone at all.
