    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.

    Definitely a feature I would like to see implemented in the next iOS update:)

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

    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...

    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.

    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.
