HOW TO: Remotely Send Text Messages From Command Line

Today, we’re going to show you a nifty way to use the command line in order to send text messages from your iPhone. 

NOTE: for this tutorial we’re going to use biteSMS. Feel free to try it with the default messaging app or iRealSMS too.

NOTE: NO, this doesn’t mean you can send free SMS messages.

NOTE: you can do this from a Mac, PC, iPad ( use MobileTerminal, or if the iPad isn’t jailbroken, you can use iSSH ) anything with access to a command line terminal as long as both devices are on the same network.

How To:

1. Open Terminal and login as mobile ( NOT root ). To do this type ssh [email protected]

2. Type in your password. The default one is ‘alpine’ (same as root). But we strongly suggest you change it. If you don’t know how, check out this tutorial

3. To send the message you need to type /Applications/ -send [-carrier|-bite] to_address text_msg . So, you can type:

  • /Applications/ -send -bite recipient’s_phone_number “FSM”


  • /Applications/ -send -carrier recipient’s_phone_number “FSM”


4. That’s it. Enjoy
