This should give more publicity to Free SMS sites as more people would send messages through those sites. I received lots of messages from friends through those site!

Congestion on mobile networks during holidays is ridiculous - most operators have to keep aside all network updates and any development work and work overtime to keep the channels free.

Obviously there is a cost to all this, and this is being passed on. Additionally, those who would have made voice calls to wish others now send SMSs - which means there is a loss of potential revenue too. At the very least it means that people with free SMS plans dont sent SMSs or send fewer - which means those that pay actually get their SMSs across successfully.

Didnt get any warning on my Idea! In my plan, local Idea SMS is 10p and all others is 25 p. While sending a group SMS I discovered Re. 1 getting deducted per SMS; so I promptly aborted the sending cycle!

I do know that most operators charge at base rate on these days, but in my plan the base rate is as above... (no special tariff vouchers)... so I wasnt expecting this... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
