Short Message Service

(messaging)
(SMS) A message service offered by the GSM digital cellular telephone system.

Using SMS, a short alphanumeric message (160 alphanumeric characters) can be sent to a mobile phone to be displayed there, much like in an alphanumeric pager system. The message is buffered by the GSM network until the phone becomes active.
