What Are SMS Text Messages?

(Note: I first wrote what follows more than 15 years ago when, erm, some people didn't know what a text message was. Okay?... )

A text message is sent using SMS (which stands Short Message Service), and is quite often the fastest way to stay in touch with friends and family. They're the messages you get on your mobile or cell phone. So, another name for text message is SMS.
