    Honestly, why buy full license if you can buy 1-year license with 50 credits cheaper?

    50 credits is $6. So you're saying people should spend $6 to buy a 1-year license instead of simply buying a lifetime liscense for $5? :confused:

    Its actually $4.50 for a full licence.
    Great deal to one of the best and most usefull cydia packages.
    If I didnt have one I'd buy one ASAP.
    Well worth it.

    Frustrated with the built-in Messages app? Wish it was much quicker to compose or reply to messages? Then biteSMS is for you, with lots of extra features like Quick Reply, Quick Compose, Scheduled Messages, Auto-Forward, Auto-Retry, Passcode Lock, Privacy, Delivery Reports, Contact Pics, Easy Pick Smileys, Templates, Signatures, and much more!

    Simply use biteSMS as a complete souped-up replacement to the built-in Messages application on iPhone, iPod and iPad devices.

    What's New In This Version:
    ● Check out biteSMS, Settings, Themes…NICE!!!
    ● Added a 'mark as read' icon in the Apple banner roll notification.
    ● Added the ability to display the contact pic in the 'Lock Screen Notification List' (see biteSMS, Settings, More Stuff, Contact Pics).
    ● Better control of Quick Reply. See biteSMS, Settings, Quick Reply: Lock Mode and Unlock Mode.
    ● Fixed a whole heap of layout issues on the iPad.
    ● Fixed up issue with very new iPhones (currently in China) in relation to Emoji character encoding.
    ● For iOS 5.1: Fixed bug in Quick Compose volume HUD where we were restoring the wrong volume category.
    ● Fixed a bunch of minor bugs.

    A license for biteSMS has been discounted for one week only to $4.50 from $8.99. You can get biteSMS from the BigBoss Cydia Repository.

    That's strange, on the biteSMS website it says $5 for a liscense :confused:

    You can see it in the screenshot below in red:

    Applejuiced, if I might ask where did you find it for $4.50?

    On iClarified.com site its listed that is on sale for $4.50
    But I cant check on cydia's bigboss repo since its already purchased and installed on my phone.
    Either way what's 50 cents anyway, still a kick ass deal even if its $5;)

    Because you get 50 messages lol
    Now seems a good deal to pay 5 dollars for the full license, but i rather pay 6 dollars for 50 credits than 10 for nothing.

    I'd pay $20 for it. Probably the best jailbreak tweak ever IMO.

    12 cents to send an SMS? What a ripoff! It costs 5 cents for no-plan SMS on AT&T. And even that's a ripoff. It should be free. Seriously, Google Voice is better than this by far. You can send SMS for free, and the app is free.

    Did you even read my post above before posting this nonsense? :confused:

    You use BiteSMS in COMBINATION with Google Voice or your own texting plan :rolleyes:

    You would never buy text messaging from BiteSMS unless you were going overseas and didn't want to pay high international rates.

    This isn't about your post specifically. And I wouldn't buy text messaging from BiteSMS period because there are so many free SMS things.

    If you do not have a package that includes a text messaging allowance, the default rate for text messages is $0.20 per text message on AT&T.
    You are charged for both sent and received text messages.

    I bought iReal SMS sometime last year and I would install it and it would make the my iPhone crash a lot. I stopped using it because of this and now I'm using bitesms. In my opinion, bitesms is a lot better. It has more features and it's actually a lot cheaper.

    That's new then. It used to be 5 cents. Either way, there's no reason to do this because Google Voice and many other services are free anyway. And the only reason SMS is used is because it works with your phone number.

    5 cents was a very long time ago.
    It went to 10 and then 20 cents but like you said sms plans are a rippoff.
    And even worst now that AT&T offers only the unlimited text plan or no texts at all
    Bend over:D

    Greatest Cydia app, and more than worth buying imo. I've used every other messaging app/hack and this is easily the best.

    Love this tweak. Sole reason why I jailbroke in the first place was because of how much I hated the stock messaging app :mad:

    I think iClarified.com made a mistake with the price in their article. They do indeed claim it's half of $8.99 but regular price is $9.99, not $8.99 (iRealSMS is $8.99)
