[quick tip] Keep track of your monthly SMS usage

Posted in mysms quick tips by mysms

For those of you who do not have a contract which includes unlimited free texting, knowing how many texts you have already sent during the current month can be very useful. That’s why we integrated this feature.

You will find the option “SMS Usage” in the mysms settings on your phone under “Sending text”. This gives you a good overview of your SMS usage during a month. The start of the period can be changed manually by tapping on the current one and choosing “Change period…”.

The cool thing is that it is divided into “Remote SMS” and “SMS from phone”.  You always know how many texts have been sent directly on your phone and how many have been sent via another device (tablet, desktop, web).

 

We hope that helps you to better keep track of your SMS usage and consequently also your costs. Are you surprised how many messages you send during a month? Do you send more messages remotely or directly from your phone?

    What is the best tool to track my son’s sms message? He is using iPhone 5s. How about iKeymonitor?

  • Hello, by using an iPhone, mysms only shows messages from/to other mysms users. Unfortunately we can’t suggest an app to track your son’s messages.
    Best, your mysms team
