    Hey everyone, a while ago I read something about an app that allows you to prevent a sent sms from being delivered (before the sending bar completes). Does anyone know what that app is called? Thanks!

    BiteSMS has a delayed send option. You get up to 3 seconds to cancel before it will start sending. Not exactly what you described but close.

    Hmm, that's interesting. I have BiteSMS, I'll check that out. But I think the app I'm talking about has a stop button where the blue send button is once the text is on its way to the recipient.

    There is no way an App can stop a text from being delivered once it has been sent to the network. What you are describing is likely a delay placed into the program (like the 3-seconds mentioned above) before the file is actually and officially sent off to the network (AT&T for example in the US).

    Since in almost every case (except cases where there is major network congestion) texts are sent and received pretty much instantaneously, even an AT&T network administrator would have a tough time stopping a text from being sent.

    I would have to say the only way to 'stop' them is to incorporate a delay in sending, as BiteSMS seems to do.
