I really don't care either way. I was responding to another post's question regarding cost. This isn't 1995, and everyone in NA pretty much has included sms/mms/txt messages with their plans (with the exception of PAYG customers). In fact, there are a few, easier ways to spoof your caller ID without paying for an app to do it. Also, I believe with this app the header is changed in some way between the time you send and the time it is received. While I am not too concerned with the dev's private server stripping header information and changing it, I am wary of allowing even more people to view any information from my device.

I am sure there is a small need for an app like this, but just understand that these types of apps (lumped in with Call Recording apps generally are seen in a negative light) and you should expect some backlash about apps like these.
