    Welcome to Android Central! What limit are you referring to? The character limit?

    If you're wanting to reset the max of 1000 before delete I don't see an option for that on the default app , I know it can be through third party apps like handcent

    Note: If you move to Marshmallow this will not work anymore as the file "settings.db" is irrelevant under Android 6.0 (annoying but true)

    You need:
    Root
    something like Root explorer and sqLite editor

    Open this file: /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
    Go to "global" subsection, then look for the following two entries
    "sms_outgoing_check_max_count" and "sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms"

    If they don't exist (by default they aren't there) then create them.
    Set the first one to whatever you want (its the maximum number of texts you can send per timeframe (eg.1000)
    Set the second one to whatever timeframe you are measuring in millisecond units (eg. 1800000)

    My settings were
    sms_outgoing_check_max_count 1000
    sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms 1800000
    This example limits my texts to 1000 messages every 30 minutes

    Close file, making sure to save saving if requested to do so.
    Reboot system. The new settings will override the Android internal ones.

    Has anyone found an equivalent method for Marshmallow?

    i think, other than rooting, a third party app is your answer. i use Chomp. but Handcent is just as fine...

    I am rooted but how would you use Chomp or Handcent to send a message to say 150 people all at once?
