SMS stands for Short Message Service, a nifty little invention that allows you to send and receive text through your phone. As a Virgin Mobile customer, your short text messages may contain up to 160 characters. 

If your cellphone is switched off or is out of range, we will store your messages on the network and they will be delivered to you as soon as possible. 

If in doubt about how to send an SMS, consult your mobile phone manual.
