    it does both, you can still leave a message. the app doesn't activate till the other person hangs up, if it goes to voice mail, it doesn't activate.

    I haven't installed it yet, but this is from the FAQ on their web site:

    "How can I tell PowerSMS to only Auto Reply missed calls that are from mobile numbers? (I don't want it to send text messages to land line phones)

    This happens automatically. By default PowerSMS will only Auto Reply missed calls that are from known Contacts, and that match the mobile phone number of the Contact. All other missed calls (i.e. from work/home numbers, unknown numbers etc.) are ignored. You can change this setting by selecting Menu > Options in the Auto Reply dialog box."

    another trial. I called myself from a land line and hung up after 1 ring, the app kicked in, I then called and waited for my voice mail, the app didn't kick in. that's a good thing..I guess.

    Thanks, Dafox...What happened when you hung up after 1 ring? You said the app kicked in, but the software developer says it only kicks in from the contact list and if it is a mobile number...Does the app try to send a text to your land line?

    After the fiasco I had with Callwave, I am very nervous, but this looks too cool to pass up!

    from all the tests I've done..if the missed call is from a non-mobile number (according to your contacts info!) powersms will not start up or ask your text message accnt to send one. If it is a mobile number..powersms will pop up and ask if you want it sent (time frame is configurable within powersms) and then will use your text message accnt to send whatever message you set up. If that mobile person does not have sms then it still sends..of course..and you will get a message back saying this person doesn't have sms.

    Great little app; apart from the auto reply feature the scheduled texts will come in handy.

    I have a Q9h, still running WM 6.0. When I schedule an SMS for a future date, the SMS gets crossed out as sent inside PowerSMS, but it never actually gets sent. Only messages that are scheduled to go the same day they are entered are being sent.

    Has anyone else been successful in scheduling messages for a future date and can confirm that the messages were delivered?

    Thanks. Did you install to the device or to the card? I run everything off of the card that will let me install there. I've tried to send to both my wife and myself; won't go if they are scheduled for the next day.

    Sorry I am late. Both of them worked fine. My onle suddestion is to install it on the device and see if that fixes your prob. Ill email them for you if you like and see if this has happened before.

    Thanks Zelendel. I'm already talking to CJ of Trinket Software via e-mail, and I re-installed to the device today and scheduled an SMS for tomorrow. We'll see what happens!

    I appreciate you testing that for me!
