Service now available at gotext.org and in goText SVN.
I've enabled again the ads, we had some problems with other scripts implementing similar no-ad modes, sorry.

Thanks egosum!

PS: could you please uniform the first post to make it look like the other official service threads? or start a new one, with same style as other official service threads? thank you!

Auto-filling the rest of the message with some char to push the advertisement out of the message.

It seems that TalkSMS supports infinite messages concatenation.
If the body is longer than 160 chars, every message will be 153 chars long.
It is not meaningful if you use only free sms, it is if you purchase credits.
Shouldn't we allow to send longer texts?

Maybe a distinct script for premium users would be better, with a couple of changes:
  • Limit higher than 160 chars (like 1530, 10 messages [if the server supports messages that long])
  • Higher max daily msg (<mm></mm>), like 10 or 50 (synchronized with <srm></srm> each day/use)

The first one is the main reason to do a distinct config in my opinion, everyone would be tempted to write (or would write by mistake) more than 160 chars with a free account and would see his message only partially delivered.

Or, even better would be another get parameter to switch the service to "premium mode" (the same as above).

What do you think about this?

Thanks for the clarification, but I have sent 160 characters without any problems ! it is not 153 ! But mostly I use 159 characters, so if you fill the whole message it will be ad free...

Me and egosum were now talking about another subject, message longer than 160 chars for "premium" talksms users, those who buy additional messages.
When you write message longer than 160 char, and you are premium, messages get splitted every 153 chars.

And yes, the adv goes away if you almost fill the 160 chars while writing your own message.

Some times the message is sent as I checked the sms log of the site but the sent message is not displayed, may this be related to the script ?
