What is SMS?

SMS is the acronym for Short Message Service, more commonly known as text messages. Text messages are messages of up to 160 characters in length sent via smart phones, mobile phones or tablets. Messages of more than 160 characters can be sent, but these will be sent as multiple messages concatenated to appear as one message, for which you could be charged more.
