Simple Mobile Android Users Can Send MMS and Short Code Texts using GO SMS Pro

Simple Mobile is a Prepaid Service that contracts with T-Mobile and uses their Towers.  So basically you can use any Unlocked T-Mobile phone on their Network. You can also use other unlocked GSM phones on Simple Mobile but will not achieve the 3G & 4G speeds unless you have a T-Mobile device.

Simple Mobile MMS service for Blackberry is non-existent and on Android it is terribly unreliable!  A few days ago I decided to try out GO SMS Pro on my HD2 running Gingerbread 2.3.4.  I immediately noticed that GO SMS Pro now has their own MMS support feature.  I sent my sister a test MMS and it went through immediately without any issues.  I couldn’t believe it so I tried it with my Mother as well, the same result.  Needless to say the service so far for me has worked seamlessly.  Thank you GO SMS Pro!

Simple Mobile Customers might also appreciate that you can go around the Short Code Message block on their network as well using GO SMS Pro.  If you want to sign up with Twitter, Facebook, etc. and receive text notifications through these Short Code services just send your messages using GO SMS Pro MMS feature instead and you will be able to successfully signup, send and receive Short Code Messages on your Android phone with Simple Mobile.

  1. Hi Brenda,

    I tried everything even got the earliest version of go sms pro and still got no luck.
    Do you know what version of go sms pro that you installed ?
    if you are using android phone, you can see the version from setting – application – manage application and select go sms pro.

    1. I’m running version 4.39 but SMS Pro has made changes to the app since I wrote this article. Simple mobile needs to allow certain shortcode messages from no charging services like. Facebook & Twitter.

  2. I downloaded Go SMS Pro on my samsung galaxy and my sms texts are still getting blocked. It’s not getting around anything. You’re not on their payroll are you?

    1. Sorry it doesn’t work for you. They did update the app and make some changes but it still works for me. I still get Twitter & Facebook updates via texts to my phone. And NO I’m not on their payroll. Just sharing with my readers.
