Hello everyone,

The enclosed article says that Alcatel, Motorola, Ericsson, and Siemens are
developing an enhanced SMS technology so that users can download ringing
tones, screen savers, and images using SMS. This sounds like Europe is
aiming for some of the same applications that have been so popular with
i-mode but with SMS and not the mobile internet. Different technologies but
the same aims? the article somewhat disagrees with other sources that claim
downloading ringing tones is already a major appllication on SMS. Anybody
have more details on this? by the way, the article claims that 20 billion
SMS messages are sent each month or almost 1 billion each day.
