Text messages (or Short Messaging Service, SMS) provide
a useful, and low cost, way to share information. The text
messages supported by your phone fall into two
categories:

• Information sent by the network to mobile phone
users within a certain area. This is called cell broadcast
and can include local information with relevance to
your current vicinity. There may be network
subscription charges for some services.
When you create messages on your phone, they are sent
to a centralized service centre using a special phone
number supplied by your network. Once received at the
service centre, the message is then transmitted over the
network to your intended recipient.
Note: when creating or reading a text message you can
use the volume buttons to the left of the display to
increase or decrease the text size for easy reading.
