The GSM brand of Teleservices , has launched (2011) an interesting value added service called in SMS domain , for postpaid and prepaid mobile subscribers across India. With this service, subscribers can easily convert their standard SMSes into enjoyable and attractive picture messages/MMS.
In general SMS service introduction as below. May not have any direct relation to above post.
The Short Message Service (SMS) provides a means for sending a message of a limited size (160 characters) to and from terminal equipment. SMS was originally standardized and implemented in GSM networks, but SMS interworking with fixed networks has also been introduced. SMS messages can also be initiated from the Internet. In many European countries the SMS market has grown significantly over the last few years. The main application of SMS has been the exchange of text messages between mobile users, but many content providers have entered this market and a variety of services are now being offered. Examples of commercial contents for SMS include:
- Personalization of mobile phones (e.g. tones, logo, screen saver)
- Directory services (e.g. telephone directory, public transport time tables)
- Dictionary (e.g. language translation)
- News and sport (e.g. notification of goals scored in football matches)
- Finance (e.g. stock market, currencies, bank services)
- Entertainment (games, competitions, quiz, interactive TV programs)
- Chat rooms (usually via TV)
- Dating services.
New services are being introduced continuously and SMS has stimulated a lot of innovation among service providers and content providers. Some network operators have developed specific platforms for SMS content provision including billing of the end user on behalf of the content provider.
Many mobile and satellite transceiver units support the sending and receiving of SMS using an extended version of the Hayes command set, a specific command language originally developed for the Hayes Smartmodem 300-baud modem in 1977. The connection between the terminal equipment and the transceiver can be realized with a serial cable (e.g., USB), a Bluetooth link, an infrared link, etc. Common AT commands include AT+CMGS (send message), AT+CMSS (send message from storage), AT+CMGL (list messages) and AT+CMGR (read message). However, not all modern devices support receiving of messages if the message storage (for instance the device’s internal memory) is not accessible using AT commands.
