*** At the moment there are almost no carriers for the USA for SMS Sidebar! I'm working on that. Pretty soon sending SMS to all major networks in the USA should be available. ***

Please after some testing, consider writing something about your experience with SMS Sidebar in the forum (see Support). I spent A LOT of time developing this, with your help I can make it even better.
