Short Message Service (SMS)

SMS is a protocol for sending and rerceiving text messaging over digital cellular networks, including TDMA, CDMA, iDEN, and GSM networks. SMS messages are limited to 160 characters of text including spaces. SMS is different from Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) in that it can only send text and not media such as videos and audio files.
