Great software. Make very easy for people with free sms service from: Alice, TIM, Vodafone and Tin to send message. Only one complain. A way to know that your massage was sent. Ciao

Addendum: I just tried the VSMS widget, which only works with Vodafone Italia numbers, and it successfully displays its CAPTCHA challenge and then transmits the SMS to the destination phone.

No longer works with Vodafone Italia: the CAPTCHA image displays as a question-mark icon only, making it impossible to authenticate one's attempt to send. I reverted to ver. 2.9.9, which used to work and it also now is afflicted with the same problem. I used the developer's contact email web form on the emeraldion website to report the problem and have not received any response (not even an acknowledgement).

Version 2.9 seems to have lost the ability to pick up mobile phone numbers from AddressBook to send messages to!

Nice application, I wish it could remember the provider settings by default when I recall the widget back from its "dormient" dashboard dock without re selecting all the time. The developer is very careful to details and make this widget as compat as possible, if we see the many features it includes (proxy, language choice, colours and modules update), really clever. It gets truly frustrating on Alice on alice account: no service wrong key code when it's not, sometime i have to retype the password in the account to make it work again, but by looking at the many updates the developer released, tracking up the constant changes of the main providers, i assume it's Alice itself causing this annoyance giving a hard time to the developer.
