    As per title - beta valid for 20 days then you have to pay.

    http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta as a source in Cydia to install the beta application.

    New Features:
    - Added the sub-menu (right-swipe in text box) showing “Add My Location” and Smileys to Landscape mode.
    - Added auto-correction in settings page per active language, so when you switch keyboards the auto-correction setting for that language will take effect.
    - Added additional Smileys, and made them more quickly accessible.
    - Added Privacy feature, allowing control over whether the Name, Text and Preview window is shown for incoming SMS messages.
    - Added Quick Reply…!
    - When sending an SMS, you can now press the Power or Home keys and it will be sent as expected, without needing to wait for the “sending….” process to complete.
    - Reorganized the settings screen and updated text, so that the settings are easier to understand.
    - Added functionality such that the Intelliscreen “Launch SMS” feature now works with BiteSMS.
    - Much faster matching of contacts, especially for those users with very large Contact databases (+5000 contacts)
    - Added an End User License Agreement into BiteSMS, which only needs to be acknowledged once.
    - Added licensing to BiteSMS, including a free trial period.

    That BETA came out a couple of days ago they release an updated BETA today 2/5/2009 with these updates features. Quote from there website:

    Just put out a new Beta, containing most of the things you guys have raised for this Beta – thanks all for your help…

    Improved Smiley images (much crisper now, thanks Thyraz).

    Improved performance when opening a conversation thread, especially for conversations with a lot of SMS messages.

    Support for SMS databases that have been “messed-up” by other SMS applications, such that the compose new message and Quick Reply now saves the SMS message in the database such that you can view it! – prior to this fix an SMS message was being saved against a group that had no group members, so you could not view it! – That’s not supposed to happen, and the database was not messed-up by either Apple or biteSMS..

    Auto-correct settings now apply when using the Quick Reply feature.

    You can now use the “Close” button on the Quick Reply after pressing “Send” without needing to wait for the “sending…” process to complete and it’ll work as expected. If it fails to send, the Quick Reply will pop-up again…nice!

    If the Privacy -> “Show Preview” setting is OFF, then when an incoming SMS arrives, your SMS ringtone will now play as expected.

    Still to do:

    Scrolling in the Quick Reply and some beautification

    Language Translations

    In Quick Reply, set the “Send” text only (not the button) to pink if it’s in effect set to “Send via biteSMS”

    We are planning on releasing into the wild on Monday, along with the new website to allow purchasing of a full license.

    Find the DEB file, search a bit its not that hard.

    then do this
    How to install iphone software : How to install DEB files

    if you find a source with the 2.7, you can add that too but I did not look for one.
