Hi. Thanks for making this, I keep getting one error though. My game always exits after the message is sent. Could there be something I am doing wrong?

@Cunibon I'm sorry to say that I don't know, android often updating their spec and API on the newer version, especially permission issue.. I haven't touched Unity and Android in the last couple of years, I'll check and let let you know if I have the time

Don't forget to go to your app in android and give permission to the app to send SMS. It will solve a lot of issues.
