    So it happens that some people likes to send SMS from web, but problem is, my iPhone SMS function stops when i receive SMS from web. I receive SMS from web, iphone shows new message, shows text, i press View, phone opens up Text window, stays empty for second and returns to SpringBoard. And the function of SMS is gone forever i guess, so i have to Erase data and sync again just because of retards sending sms from web (even my provider does that).

    Any solutions.

    I don't have a solution for you, unfortunately, but I wanted to point out that there are some good reasons for sending SMS messages via the web. For instance, I don't receive service in the basement I work in, but still need to get ahold of people occasionally while I'm at work to make sure of plans and such. I hope that I am not a retard for doing so. :)

    How exactly are these messages being sent? I can send an SMS to my iPhone using any email client to <mynumber> and I can read it fine. What's sending the messages that are crashing your SMS app?

    ok i talkted to some people and hopefuly they wont send me SMS from that site anymore.

    But this got me thinking, if someone just makes something like virus/bot, that automatically sends SMS to AT&T numbers in way like this webpage does, that would make a lot of iPhone users pissed because their SMS function is gone :confused:
