3A. Sprint Service: The Basics

Text Messaging (SMS) and Multimedia Messaging (MMS)

With Text Messaging (SMS), you can send and receive instant text messages between your wireless device
and another messaging-ready phone.

In addition, Text Messaging includes a variety of preset messages, such as “I’m running late, I’m on my way,”
that make composing messages fast and easy. Use your device to customize your own preset messages
(up to 160 characters).

Multimedia messages, or MMS, can contain text and pictures, recorded voice, audio or video files, picture
slideshows, contact cards (vCard), or appointments (vCalendar).
