Send a Text Message

The mobile phone is probably one of the
greatest inventions of the 21st century. It
helps us to stay in touch with people on the
go. Innovation and technology has made
numerous updates to the present mobile
phones/smartphones and updated the
services they provided. First, mobile phones

(SMS). A text message on our mobile phones has a
limitation of 160 characters, which includes spaces. This
means that if you create a text message of 160+
characters then it will reach the recipient as several split
messages one after the other. This particular drawback

has been removed in the new smartphones using different text messaging
applications. Also one can send a message to any mobile phone
regardless of the service provider he/she is using. One must keep a check
on the charges per SMS taken from their service provider. Usually people
take a plan if they are frequently sending text
messages on daily basis as it helps lower the
cost per SMS.
