By now almost everyone has experienced a text message on their mobile phone. Whether it be a service alert from their wireless provider or a text message from an individual; text is the newest way to get Mobile content for your cell phone! and it is getting ready to explode in the U.S.
SMS stands for Short Message Service, commonly called text messaging. The U.S. has lagged behind Europe, Asia and Australia where billions of messages are transmitted and the medium is maturing. A reported 2.3 billion text messages are being sent monthly in the U.K., and millions of consumers are downloading ringtones, wallpaper and games for their mobile. In America, the platform is set for explosive growth in 2005. Nearly 170 million people now have a cell phone in the U.S.
