SMS the Short message service is always been the most interesting and fun way to communicate rather than using the voice call feature of a mobile.In other way it seems difficult by other people who don’t use SMS typing service but actually peoples are much interested in the each word they type or receive through the SMS. People around the world were already facilitate by the voice communicating feature of a Telephone for one century so this is the reason why people did not get much excited as they were when the SMS feature was first launched.There was not any way to communicate through the text form with each other before 1980’s.The SMS service was launched to combine network and public text data all in a single Mobile Phone.About 108 billion (One thousand and 8 crore) SMS is being Sent in the United States monthly.”
