If you’d like to add a new contact, you need to do this in your stock contact app on your phone at first. Afterwards, select “Manually sync” (Android phone) or “Conact sync” (iPhone) in the mysms settings and wait until the sync has completely finished. Now, your added contact should be visible in the mysms app as well.
Trigger a manual sync
Are you sometimes wondering why recent contact changes aren’t displayed? The reason for that is that a complete sync only takes place every 24 hours. So, if you’d like to make your changes visible in the mysms app immediately, you also need to trigger a manual sync.

mysms offers Android phone users the great possibility, to not only send mysms friends messages, but also messages via a connector or texts via your mobile carrier. Maybe you have already seen that the mysms settings on your phone include an option called „Text via“. We’ve integrated this function so that you can arrange your sending preferences. It completely depends on you how your text message is sent.
How to change your sending options
If your recipient also uses mysms, the sending option “mysms friends” will always be the first choice, as this option is free of charge. In case you have installed a connector, you can choose, whether you’d like your messages to be sent primarily via this connector or via your mobile carrier. Don’t forget you’ll receive 10 free messages, if you download the mysms out connector :). However, if your contact is not supported by your preferred sending option, the next available option will automatically be selected. You can easily arrange your sending preferences with “drag & drop” for domestic and international texting. Your sending options will then be shown in the send button whenever you send a new message.
Additional preferences for specific contacts
After you’ve arranged your sending preferences for all contacts, you can additionally change this setting for individual contacts in a particular thread. Press and hold the send button to see all available sending options. Then choose one option and send a message. The option will be saved as first preference for this contact. Your “Text via” setting won’t be changed.
Please note: This option is a feature for Android phone users only, as iPhone and Windows Phone users are only able to send mysms friends messages. We’d love to provide our Windows Phone and iPhone users with the same feature set and we promise to implement the functionality as soon as restrictions of the operating systems change.

Do you possess a tablet, but are desperately looking for a way to send text messages? As mysms is a cross-platform app, you can also use the app on your Android tablet or iPad and benefit from a larger display and a more convenient keyboard for writing texts.
mysms for tablets
To get started, download mysms on your iPhone, Android or Windows Phone first and create an account on your smartphone by using your mobile phone number. Some of you might have a tablet with a SIM card. Also in this case you need to register with your phone number. Otherwise you won’t be able to use our cloud features or cross-device synchronization.
After you’ve successfully registered on your phone and the sync of your contacts and messages has completely finished, you can start with mysms on your tablet right away. mysms offers you the same sending options as you’re enjoying on your smartphone and is not depending on the kind of tablet you’re using (Wi-Fi or Cellular). If you’re using an Android phone, you can send mysms friends messages, messages via a connector as well as texts via your mobile carrier. In case you’re using an iPhone or Windows Phone you can text for free with other mysms users – just invite your friends to mysms.

All your messages are synced to the mysms cloud. However, if you’d like to archive and search your messages, just save them in Evernote.
your messages in Evernote
Evernote is an additional storage, where you can manage and search your messages. Simply connect your mysms account with Evernote via mysms on your mobile, desktop or the web app, by clicking on “Evernote” in the mysms settings. If you haven’t been using Evernote yet, you need to create an account first, which is also possible via our web or desktop apps. After the successful connection, you will find all of your new incoming and outgoing messages in Evernote as well. As this is also a cloud service, your archived messages are accessible via any device.
connect your mysms account with Evernote
Please note that it is not possible to restore your messages back from Evernote to mysms.
We know some of our Android tablet users own a tablet with a small screen, e.g. the Nexus 7. Today we’ve got a special tip for you, how to optimize the settings to enjoy a better overview of the conversations.
Normally, mysms is optimized for landscape and portrait mode. In case you’re using a tablet with a small screen, the contact pictures may occupy valuable space of your thread view. Therefore, we’ve implemented a feature that simply hides contact pictures in portrait mode. Just deactivate the option in the settings as shown below!
