What is SMS? SMS is an acronym standing for Short Message Service. It is commonly referred to as text messaging or “texting” as well. SMS is a method by which messages can be sent to a cell phone via another cell phone, a computer connected to the Internet, a regular land line, or a handheld device such as a Blackberry. The original specifications for SMS were developed in 1985, though real implementation and popularity took nearly a decade to achieve.
SMS use for personal communication is rapidly increasing in popularity. In 2000, less than 20 billion SMS messages were sent; by 2004 that number had grown to in excess of 500 billion messages. The largest market for SMS is Southeast Asia, with Europe just behind. The United States has seemed to be a slow adopter for the early years of the 21st century, but the pace of texting appears to be increasing in the United States as service providers make its use, particularly between networks, easier.
How Does SMS Spy Software Work?
You basically install a small piece of SMS spy software (spy on text) that allows you to see everything that happens on the phone. You aren’t only limited to SMS, you can view their call logs, text messages of all sorts, web browsing activity, GPS location, and all of that. It’s like as if you literally own the phone – you can see every single thing that’s going on.
