It technically means short message service but is just a fancy name for txt message.  They are not included in your data plan as they need to have an additional plan to get x amount for free per month.  Otherwise, they run $.20 per message sent and received.  Plans start at $5 for 250 to $20 for 5000 with unlimited VZW mobile to mobile.

You can add one of the following text message packages to your account to avoid charges of $.20 per sent/received text message.

(message amount includes sent/received) 

250 messages                                   $5 a month

500 messages+unlimited Mobile to Mobile     $10 a month

1500 messages+unlimited Mobile to Mobile    $15 a month

5000 messages+unlimited Mobile to Mobile    $20 a month

*overage is $.10 per sent/received message

Correct TheGreatOne! The $15 message package was inactive 02/01/10. Must be grandfathered in to have the plan.
