Most of us started our cellular device journey with SMS, those good old days when the real tension was not passing the high school exam but to get a reminder from network operator “your SMS pack is expiring tomorrow”. Though technology has seen the advancement by leaps and bound since then and the launch of Instant messaging services like WhatsApp, Viber and Hike have almost killed the SMS era, but SMS are still reliable choice for people who likes short and simple conversation.
I still remember, my friend told me that he was back bitching about his Girl friend with one of his female friend and to his dismay he found one of his text was accidentally sent to his girl friend. Now don’t ask me what happened next, you are smart enough to analyse this situation, though it was a pre-iPhone era. Being proud iPhone owner, you can breath easy and relax as today at GizmoStorm, we are here with “how to undo sent message on iPhone” :

Pre-requisites to Undo Sent SMS on iPhone :
- Your iPhone should be Jailbroken.
- Make sure BigBoss repo is added in your Cydia sources.
How To Stop Sent SMS on iPhone:
Step 1 : Head over to Cydia-> search for SendDelay-> press Install and Confirm your installation.
Step 2 : Once package installation is done, it’ll ask you to Restart Springboard. A new preference pane will be added to the stock Settings app. Wait till your iPhone starts, head over to Settings and locate SendDelay.
Step 3 : Adjust the timer (it ranges from 0-5 seconds) according to your need. This timer will give you a second chance to re-think about your decision of sending the message. For instance you have set the timer as 5 seconds, once you sent the message you have 5 seconds to Stop Sent SMS.
This tweak will be really handy if you are too prone to send messages to wrong contacts often. For people just like me who wants this tweak once in a while can just set the timer to 1 second. Someone rightly said “prevention is better than cure”, and SendDelay is a perfect example of it. Definitely a +1 from our side.
