GSM has the ability to send sms with delayed delivery.

This is done through codes preceeding the phone number, but since in jolla, you have a threaded view for each contact (which is good), you're not able to send a delayed sms while keeping it in the same thread. Also copying a contacts phone number and modifying it would be a PITA.

So my suggestion is this:

implement a simple interface(probably in the message type dialog) to send a specific sms with a given delay, and then send the sms with the proper pre-number codes.

P.S. other features are also available in the GSM spec, and would also be usefull to implement in the same dialog, such has anonymous sms, etc.

I also need this from time to time.

It would also be ok if the delay would be done at the OS level. Basically, being able to set a time and a date when the sms should be sent, instead of sending it immediately.

An example would be if you want to make sure you send a reminder, but it's not an appropriate time to do so.
