What is SMS and MMS

SMS stands for Short Messages Service. Invented in the 1980s and defined by the 1985 GSM guidelines, it is one of the oldest texting technologies. Also, it is the most prevalent and widely used. 

MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service. It was developed using the same technologies as SMS to allow SMS users to upload multimedia content. It is most commonly used to send videos, but it can also be used to send audio, phone contacts, and video files.

SMS and MMS Usage

As mentioned above, since most carriers offer unlimited texting plans, SMS is the most popular in the US, making SMS free or nearly free to use. iMessage is a close second due to the large number of iPhone users in the country. Texting has exploded over the last decade to the point that we are actually experiencing over 6 billion SMS messages sent every day in the US alone. Annual MMS traffic in the U.S. grew from 57 billion to 96 billion messages from 2010 to 2013.
