We're confident the app does what it says (and we test it often). But there is no 100% guarantee that your Contacts will get a fwded SMS from your phone via this app. Delivery relies on factors beyond our control, such as your telco's reliability, a phone being on and in a good reception area, your recipients' phones switched off /out of range, plus any software errors which may cause the app not to work. NEVER use the app as the only or "first response" in any critical situation. Buying the app means you acknowledge and agree with this statement. Please see TERMS on our website.
