SMS messages use a part of the data stream that was intended for the Internet providers to send messages back and forth. Wireless phone companies found they could let customers use these channels to send messages, too. The funny thing is, it doesn't cost a phone company anything to let an SMS message traverse the network, but they sure know how to charge for it.
i can still send text messages even though the wireless and data are turned off and there are no other funds in my account but the $45 i paid for this month
