Vodafone and Verizon integrate SMS
Verizon Wireless and Vodafone are introducing transatlantic text messaging. This collaboration will enable their respective customers to send and receive text messages between the Verizon Wireless CDMA network and Vodafone's GSM networks.

The transatlantic text messaging services will be introduced on a phased basis in the U.S. and 10 of Vodafone's GSM networks. All Verizon Wireless customers with TXT messaging-capable handsets, and Vodafone customers across Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK, will be able to use the
service beginning in early 2004. Vodafone intends to extend the service to an even wider footprint during 2004.

Each text message sent travels between GSM and CDMA networks and is converted by InphoMatch, a U.S. vendor, before being forwarded to the recipient's handset.

The InphoMatch's global inter-carrier network spans four continents - North America, South America, Europe and Asia - and 31 countries including the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore and the Philippines. Major carrier customers include AT&T Wireless, Dobson Communications, Leap Wireless, T-Mobile, Telefonica, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone.
