Text messages are a quick way to communicate with people for private or commercial purposes. With text messages, you can chat with a partner by typing on the keyboard and reading what they write to you on the screen.

So, why not just pick up the phone and talk?
It's faster than email and calls. And you do not have to pay anything in text. If you need to chat with somebody in short or ask a quick question, it's much less intrusive than calling someone. As with most development methods, some types of text messaging are available and each is incompatible with others. But do not let it keep you from trying it out. The main text messages are ICQ (www.icq.com), MSN Messenger (www.msn.com), AIM (www.aim.com) and Yahoo Messenger (www.yahoo.com).

Some text messages are starting to offer voice and video chat. The future of digital communication is an integrated product, where voice, video, interactive text messages and email are all an effective way of communicating. In the future you will be able to switch between text, voice and videos with ease. Until now, we will continue to use different methods for different communication needs: – (
