Background: What is Text Messaging / Texting or SMS?

It’s the same thing (sort of). The term "Texting" or "Text Messaging" is often intended to mean SMS (Short Message Service). SMS has been a mainstay of cell phone communications since the old PCS days. As generations have grown up used to the cell phone, we traded flip phones for smart phones. More and more people have given up their “home” phone,  andpeople are becoming more likely to use SMS – even when they don’t know for sure if the other party is using a cell phone.

How many times have you rejected a call with a message? If the caller was not on a cell they might not receive it. Ask yourself - how many times do people do that to you? We think you want their messages!

SMS does vary by phone and carrier network – many phones (not all) support MMS (Multimedia Message Service) which allows “text” messages to contain audio, pictures and sometimes even video. Some phones (to varying degrees) even support “group chat” – allowing multiple people to be involved in a discussion. MMS often do not work when the sender and recipient aren’t on the same network or when one of the parties does not have a data connection as (regardless if it is billed under the plan) MSS is actually a data service, and tends to have user fees.

Text messages all started with 128 bytes (or 8 bit characters) which was later improved to 160 7 bit characters. Longer messages are chained together using multiple individual messages and recombined at the receiving side. This is known as concatenated SMS. Our system can support 5 messages concatenated for a total of 765 7 bit characters / 670 8 bit characters / 335 16 bit characters.

Our service leverages the text messages they are able to receive on their network without cost, and receives the most common messages they are likely to try to send.

In 2010, 6.1 trillion SMS messages were sent (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS)
