    They can data mine, and use anything you do on their app and make a profit from it with impunity and you get squat. Ain't that grand?

    You do get something - arguably one of the best tweaks out there

    exactly. people's heads just about popped off when Instagram changed their policy to say they "could" use users data

    why would this be any different?

    Correct me if I am wrong (and I am sure someone will), but wouldn't this apply only if you use the "Send via biteSMS Method" instead of "Send via Carrier Method". AND, I would bet if you read your Verizon, or AT&T, or T-Mpbile, or ???, EULA it would have a pretty similar clause.

    IMHO, anybody who sends anything via email or SMS and thinks it is totally private, never can be seen by anybody other than who one intends, has been badly deceived.

    I think that's less of a texting policy and
    More of a theming policy.
    On your device the texts you send to and from aren't going through bite*
    Unless your using bites service.
    But if you develop a theme and submit it to bite, or you develop a "fix" or better method In the coding and send it to bite they re saying they can legally claim it.
    Which judging by all the themes in cydia, they haven't done.
    But they could. I think it's a standard in all user agreements.

    That makes better sense. And standard. If you use our product, even if you make changes to it, we still own the rights to the product.

    Any text, whether through apple or bite is stored and saved for a time. How do you think police and FBI get old text messages during criminal cases? Nothing is truly secret in this world. But I really wouldn't worry about it.

    That doesn't mean I would want someone reading my texts. Though it would be pretty boring for them.

    Ha. I hear ya. A lot of "pick up milk on way home" texts here. I don't think people sit and read them. Just archive them.

    After reading this again I think it only means texts sent through the bitesms servers and not through the app itself.
