  2. Thanks, I am using this tutorial over than a four months, and untill it happened that the notification through sms stopped suddenly twice. First it was before one month, and it started after one week, and now again it is stopped. Is it possible that Google has some limitation of the the number of sms's which can be send in one month?

    Thanks in advance, Vlada :D

    1. Yes, it happens in different countries with different frequencies. Therefore, we can assume that this is something Google is constantly reviewed.

  3. Gmail blocks this app or I don't know what happens. In log i see "I can not connect to blahblahblah@gmail.com" and I've receive message on gmail "Suspicious try to connect to your account" or something like. What did I do wrong?
