    Default "Messaging is sending a large amount of messages...."

    I've noticed on my Nexus 4 if I send quite a few SMS in a short space of time I get a "Messaging is sending a large amount of messages" warning with a prompt to Allow or Deny for every message I send for about an hour after it's quite annoying.

    It's not a massive issue I know but does anybody know a way to disable it? I'm hoping it doesn't involve Root as I'm bored of that scene now.

    This is a "feature" of Jelly Bean. Only way to remove it is to use a modded SMS.apk, which does require root.

    Its a feature to stop apps from sending lots of SMS without your knowledge in the background. Because Android allows other apps to have access to sending SMS/MMS for you, this is one way to stop rogue apps.

    Still would be nice if you could "whitelist" an app, but doesn't seem to be the case right now.

    It's adjustable I think!

    I don't know what ROM that guy is using, but I don't have that option to change the limit. :|

    Hmm that's interesting. That option isn't on my Galaxy Nexus with 4.2 stock. The poster in that thread seems to be running a custom ROM based on his battery % bar...

    That's really a good feature but I think setting a time limit or, as suggested, whitelisting should be an option.

    I don't have that option in my menu. What are you running? (ROM?)

    I don't know, I just know it happens when sending X amount of messages within a certain time. It's extremely irritating.

    Default Text messaging limits -_-

    Hi everyone,

    I've looked up pretty much every solution to SMS limit. What are your success stories to stop that dreaded message from popping up after too many SMS messages being sent? (Nexus 4 and 4.2.1. users please) I've already rooted my phone as well..

    I tried a bunch of methods like downloading apk patches and also using this guy's SMS limit how to guide for editing with root explorer and sqleditior.

    My mistake, you actually have to modify systemui. Easiest way to do this is flash a custom ROM that has the text limit message removed or modified. It should be included in CyanogenMod soon (it's still a work in progress).

    I just ran into this problem, it is the stupidest thing I have ever seen.
    This is a major usability flaw and should be removed immediately.
    "One way to stop rogue apps" is a terrible excuse - here's an idea... DON'T INSTALL SH@% APPS ON YOUR PHONE.

    Thought I would add my thoughts.
    This is the most annoying thing ever. I used to use Airdroid or now SnapPea, but even if I send one message through either of them, I have to unlock my phone and allow it. Useless.
    Does the above programme fix this issue?

    Never mind. I found a solution. This worked for me on my Nexus 4 running the Latest CM10.1 nightly.
