Custom SMS commands


If you think that these commands are difficult to remember or if you do not want to send the same message multiple times then you can customize your SMS commands (read the following article).


Notes!

You can use SMS commands only if you have installed on the target phone Spy Phone App v7.0 or a higher version.


The messages will not be displayed on the phone and will not be annoying.
However there are some cases in which these messages will appear:
- The target phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat / 5.1 Lollipop / 6.0 Marshmallow (read the following article)
- Spy Phone App was uninstalled
