MTN's Short Message Service (SMS) lets you send short text messages (limited to 160 characters) to any mobile phone or SMS-capable device, nationally and internationally.
This service is ideal for those times when you're too busy to talk or want to conserve your airtime, but still need to communicate with friends and family.
SMS is available to all MTN customers.
All MTN SIM cards are pre-programmed so that you can start SMSing immediately.
