SMS Service

SMS stands for Short Message Service. Every mobile phone operator provides this facility where you can send text messages of up to 160 characters from your mobile phone.

Most often you send an SMS message to another mobile. But now there are also SMS gateway sites on the internet that allow you to send and receive SMS messages from your web browser.
