AT&T Wireless takes text messaging global
Starting today, AT&T Wireless' customers will be able to use text messaging to keep in touch with business colleagues, friends, and loved ones in select countries around the globe. Wireless subscribers in more than a dozen countries - including China, Germany, Philippines, Singapore, and the United Kingdom - can now exchange text messages internationally with AT&T Wireless customers in the U.S.

AT&T Wireless' initial roll out of international text messaging capabilities includes countries that represent more than a third of all text messaging traffic worldwide. The company expects to bring on some 200 carriers in 100 countries in the months ahead. This new capability builds on AT&T Wireless customers' existing ability to take their compatible phones to over 100 countries and use text messaging to stay connected to people back in the U.S.

AT&T Wireless' customers with compatible phones can enjoy text-messaging capabilities while traveling abroad in these countries where the company has roaming agreements. Since AT&T Wireless' Next Generation network operates on GSM/GPRS, customers can use their "home phones" to easily stay in touch via text messaging while visiting international destinations.

"As the text messaging craze builds around the world, AT&T Wireless continues to break through barriers to make text messaging an easy, affordable means of communication," said John Bunyan, senior vice president, AT&T Wireless Mobile Multimedia Services.

Interesting to note that SMS is something going around the world for some time now. But better later than never. Welcome to the global mobile village AT&T users .
