Text and picture messaging (SMS and MMS) work similar to how they do on the smartphone you already have. Burner is available for both iOS and Android.
1. Sending a text
Once you've installed the app, to send a text simply tap the message icon at the bottom of the screen (second one from the left).
If you've got more than one Burner line, the app may prompt you to choose which line to send your text from.
Then you'll be presented with the New Message screen.
From here you can choose one recipient by typing their number or choosing a contact, then type your message and hit "Send" when you're ready.
Burner uses alternating colors and alignment like your normal messaging app, so that your texts are easy to read.
2. Sending photos and gifs
As you can see in the screenshots above, Burner supports picture messaging (MMS) as well as gifs.
But since we offer different types of Burners for different purposes, it's worth noting that to send pictures and gifs, you need a subscription or a Picture Burner.
Videos are not supported at this time.
3. Deleting text messages
You can delete text messages individually, or in bulk.
To delete a single message, tap and hold your finger down on the message. From here you can delete the message, or copy it.
Bulk delete can be accomplished with the shortcuts from the Inbox. Learn more about shortcuts.
4. Archiving your texts
Using Burner Connections to Dropbox and/or Google Drive, you can automatically archive your text messages, pictures, and even your contacts lists.
5. Texting on Burner and your phone bill
Text messages will not be deducted from your phone plan, since they are sent using data.
