    Default HELP SMS10 ppl limit
    Hey I was wondering if there is a tweak for the messaging app that gets rid of the 10 people limit. When you create a new message you can only send it to 10 people. This is annnoying cuz I constantly send out mass texts. If there is a tweak can you show me the links or what ever i need to do to get rid of the limit.
    ps twitter is not what im looking for.

    Ok you want to ssh onto your iPhone, but personally i used iFile for this cuz its more convenient.

    1. Go to system > library > Carrier Bundles > (then navigate to your carrier bundle; in my case its att) ATT_US.bundle

    2. Then you'll need to edit the carrier.plist.
    3. Locate this code:
    Code:
    <key>MMS</key>
    	<dict>
    		<key>GroupModeEnabled</key>
    		<false/>
    		<key>MMSC</key>
    		<string>http://mmsc.cingular.com</string>
    		<key>MaxMessageSize</key>
    		<integer>9000000</integer>
    		<key>MaxRecipients</key>
    		<integer>100</integer>
    		<key>MaxVideoBitrate</key>
    		<integer>9310972</integer>
    		<key>OnWhileRoaming</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>Proxy</key>
    		<string>wireless.cingular.com:80</string>
    	</dict>
    You see where it says
    Code:
    <key>MaxRecipients</key>
    		<integer>100</integer>
    Well the integer should say 10, so all you have to do is change it to what ever you want. In my case I put 100 cuz I dont think I'll ever need to send out a text with more than 100 people. Then just press save/done. Go into your messages app and there you go. Hope this helped.

    BTW this is on 3.x. I have no idea about 4.0 cuz i havent upgraded yet.

    Oh and I just checked it for Softbank and the integer seems to be 20 so you can just change it. But once again im on 3.1.2. Give it a shot on 4.0 and tell me how it goes.

    Are you opening the carrier.plist with a plist editor? Download a program and copy the carrier.plist to the desktop then open it with the editor then edit the code. The way I used was downloading iFile through Cydia which has a built in plist editor.

    ok since you seem to know your way around the iphone is there anyway I can create a group of contacts that i can select instead of selecting each one when i want to send the same thing to every person.

    That worked by the way thanks

    I have no idea. In fact I upgraded to 4.0 and got tired of it sucking so downgraded to 3.1.2 and now when I try to do this it won't work. I think it has to do with the baseband. Cuz i don't think the baseband gets downgraded when you downgrade. I'll see how I can downgrade my baseband....... And see if it works.
