You will receive SMS tests which have code with random letters or numbers in its content. Besides that the content can include anything, including links. Please ignore completely all our test SMS and do not reply to any of them. We send SMS only in order to check if they have been delivered to your phone and, if so, in what form.

No, we are saving only those messages which contain our code and for which we prove to be our tests. All other messages are dismissed and not being saved anywhere in our system. For more information, please read our Privacy Policy.
The reason is that a lot of Telecom SMS providers and Mobile Network Operators need to send SMS test messages to foreign countries to verify and ensure proper delivery of their SMS routes. You actually get paid because we use your phone number to provide such testing services.
Keep the app running constantly and have stable Internet connection. At times Android OS automatically closes some apps so you need to ensure that our app is opened again in such cases. Your main goal is to keep the app always running, our system will see that your phone is available for tests and you will have a greater chance of receiving test messages.
If you didn't find your country during registration it means that Money SMS isn't available in your country at the moment.
