Instead of sending an SMS right now, I would like to send a "delayed" SMS. For example, delay it by 45 minutes, or 60 minutes, etc.

Is there any way to do it?

I have tried the apps txtot, FutureText, and SMS Scheduler, but they don't work. The default iPhone "Messages" app cannot receive SMSes sent by these apps.

If you are going to jailbreak your iPhone, I can strongly suggest biteSMS. It supports schedules texting among many other things. A killer app!

Without jailbreak what you ask isn't possible. Third party Apps from the App Store can't access the SMS service.

With a jailbreak there seems to be apps on the Cydia Store that have this function. Like Future SMS.

You can try the app called SMS Auto Sender. I tried it in US and Canada and works well. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/auto-sender/id1375015129?mt=8

    hmm I've tried many times and it never worked. What steps did you take to send the delayed SMS? – Pacerier Dec 14 '13 at 13:14

The RemindMe service offers a text scheduler that does what you need:

Create SMS appointment reminders for specific events at a date and time specified by you. You can schedule text messages as a once off reminder or for recurring events.

  • That's true, but it somewhat clunky–it's designed as a calendar app, not as an automated SMS service. – JMY1000 Mar 9 '16 at 17:01

I found this works, at least at my iPhone 8. https://www.freeramble.com/sms.html

    Welcome to Ask Different and thank you for your answer. :) Unfortunately, short answers such as this don't really provide enough detail or context to help many users. And, just providing a link is often not the best approach as it may no longer work in future. Instead, could you please edit your answer (there's an edit link below it) to include a summary of why FreeRamble meets the needs of the asker? – Monomeeth Sep 17 '18 at 3:58
  • If you are the developer of this app, or in any way benefit from the sale of this app, you should state this explicitly in your answer. – IconDaemon Sep 17 '18 at 12:10

Try Joopz.com, works great and you don't have to jail break your phone.

  • I don't see how this is relevant -- Joopz is a CRM system intended for use by businesses, not by end-users. – duskwuff -inactive- Sep 17 '18 at 2:59
