How to Remove 100 SMS per hour Sending limit in Android phones

  • Your phone's USB drivers should be installed
  • Android SDK Download it as zip and extract/place in C drive.
  • USB Debugging on phone enabled (Settings\Applications\Development\USB debugging)
  • You’ll need to have superuser permissions installed on your phone. This can normally be obtained by rooting your device then installing a custom ROM

How To Remove the 100 SMS Per Hour Limit
1. Open the command prompt
2. Copy and paste the following command into command prompt and press Enter key. This will navigate to your Android SDK folder in C drive and output will be C:\Android\platform-tools>
cd C:\Android\platform-tools
3. Once you’ve navigated there, enter the following commands, one per line. Do not enter anything in red, this is for informational purposes, and what will display on your command prompt as output.
C:\Android\platform-tools> adb shell
# sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
SQLite version 3.5.9
Enter “.help” for instructions
 INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES(‘sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’, 0);
INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES(‘sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’, 0);

Above command will completelty remove the limit.
Zero in  (‘sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’, 0) means that No limit. You can change the zero to something, for example 500 to make 500 SMS sending limit per hour. Command with 500 should be (‘sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’, 500)

Reboot your phone after executing above commands to make new SMS limit work for you.


  1. I have Samsung Nexus S
    Android Version: 4.1.1
    Baseband Version: M200KRKC1
    Build number: JRO03E

    and i dont have gservices table in settings.db

    guide me.

  2. Use secure table instead gservices ;-)

    for example:

    INSERT INTO secure (name, value) VALUES (‘sms_outgoing_check_max_count’, 999999);

    INSERT INTO secure (name, value) VALUES (‘sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’, 0);

  3. i am having Noir A10, rooted, i opened the system db and inserted new entry but it says db is locked.. what can be the issue? thanks

    Once you are in settings.db go to system, and then do a search for "sms" and you should find something that says "android.msg.sms.max.count" just edit this value to make it as large as you want.
