New to SMS? What is a text message?

SMS is the acronym for Short Message Service. SMS allows up to 160 characters of text to be sent or received by a digital mobile phone. Just type your message onto the keypad of your cellular phone. Think of it as mini-email.

Text messaging is a SMS (Short Message Service) that can be made from a mobile phone (cell phone) to another mobile phone or from and to web based services such as IQC [where you don't need a phone to send an SMS]. SMS allows the sending and receiving of a maximum of 160 characters. You can also send non-text short messages such as ringtones, logos, cards, calendars, clipart and WAP. More than 20 billion text messages are sent per month.
