Short Message Service (commonly abbreviated SMS), is a messaging protocol for sending data from a server to mobile devices, and, from mobile devices to a server and on to other mobile devices. These short text messages are ideal for mobile telephone devices, whose limited keypads and data costs hinder long form communications. The SMS technology has facilitated the development and growth of mobile text messaging across the globe. [1]
