What Is The Real Cost Of An SMS ?


Text messaging or commonly known as SMS has become the second most widely used feature in any phone after watching time.

Everyone in the world, no matter prepaid, postpaid, smartphone, dumb phone do text messaging.

But the question is How much do you pay for it?

Today in 5$ we can send unlimited SMS. and for us 5 bucks don’t seems too much and unlimited sounds too big. Overall we see it as value for money.

So Do you also feel the same ?

If you do so then change your mind guys coz my views are lil bit different.

When you send your friend an SMS “Hey man, whats up?”, it will costs a wireless carrier roughly 1/1,000 of a US cent. That is to say, sending roughly 1,000 text messages should cost, at wholesale pricing, about a single cent. If you send a lot of lengthier texts, it might round up to two cents.

So that means if you are sending 500,000 text messages per month then only you can get worth of your 5$.

The problem was we never knew what a single fucking SMS cost us.

In reality, an MMS or email is anywhere from a thousand to a hundred thousand times more data than an SMS.

So i hope i cleared lot of wrong thoughts in your mind 😀

cheers.
