Michael Ritter on Mar 27, 2014

Final SMS Pro 1.5.0 comes with the following new features:

Enhanced Protection of Your Store
The new enhanced SMS validation ensures that only properly validated mobile numbers and customers from specific countries can register and order.

Collect Mobile Numbers of Already Registered Customers
Option to collect/require mobile numbers from customers who registered before the installation of Final SMS Pro.

Pre Defined Color Schemes and Styles
Final SMS now comes with pre defined color schemes and styles to get you up and running straight away. At this time this just affects the validation code request button, but already paths the way for future enhancements.

General fixes, fine-tuning and tested compatibility with Magento 1.8.x

Final SMS Pro 1.4.0 for Magento with Reception Times and Follow Up Email Support

Michael Ritter on Jan 7, 2013

Final SMS Pro is now available in version 1.4.0 with the following new features:

Reception Times and Choice of Messages
Now your customers can choose at what times they'll receive SMSes. E.G. preventing receiving SMSes in the middle of the night.

Final SMS Pro will use the default timezone of the store the customer registered with. Additionally the customer can also set this manually for his account, incl. reception times and the SMSes he want to receive.

Character Substitution
For the Polish and Turkish languages you can now choose to substitute characters which're not part of the GSM character set and would require Unicode (70 characters per SMS). Using substitution, you can use 160 characters per SMS and e.G. for Polish the characters ą Ą ę Ę ó Ó ś Ś ł Ł ż Ż ź Ź ć Ć ń Ń will be converted to a A e E o O s S l L z Z z Z c C n N.

Support for aheadWorks Follow Up Email
As aheadWork's Follow Up Email bypasses Magento's transactional messages system to queue messages for later sending, we needed to implement special support for it.

Predefined SMS Messages
If you setup a new template, Final SMS Pro now loads a ready to use template for the SMS (English and German).

If you're a new customer, you can get Final SMS Pro in the store.
