Gone are the days when people used to write and type long letters and post them before reluctantly waiting for it to reach its recipient. Times are changing and new technologies are being introduced almost every single day. While once mobile phones were thought to be luxury items, it is only now that people realise their importance.
One such feature of the cell phone is the SMS or the short message service. SMS is a great way to communicate via simply typing whatever text or message you need to convey. The prime purpose of SMS is to type short messages and send them to the receiver on another phone. These messages could be informative, knowledgeable, business related or simply for social purposes.
Almost 75% of mobile phone users are into short message services. It allows you to send and receive messages to almost any corner of the world. All you have to do is type the message you need to convey on the keypad, select the number you wish to send it to and then press the ‘send’ button.
Recently SMS has become so popular that a number of companies and organisations are using it as a marketing tool to promote their products. The SMS system is so flexible that you can send SMS from phone to phone or by email to phone.
