What is text messaging?

Text messaging, also called Short Messaging Service (SMS), is a wireless service available on digital mobile networks. Normally, messages are limited to 160 characters.

Text messaging is a global phenomenon. Exchange messages with friends—anytime, anywhere, enter contests, use your favourite Instant Messaging service, interact with TV and Radio shows and MUCH more!

You can send text messages to another text messaging capable phone or from your phone to any e-mail address. You can also receive text messages from another text messaging-capable phone.

Who can send and receive text messages?

All Wireless customers can text message. You don't need to subscribe to the Text Messaging service to be able to send and receive text messages. Rogers wireless customers can receive text messages from other Rogers customers and customers of other wireless carriers (ally and internationally).To see what international wireless carriers are currently available, go to click here.
