    Daemoch, what do you mean with:
    "SMS is a US standard that stands for Short Message System. It was a government mandate that was put in place over a decade ago here and which's cost of implementation were subsidized by the tax payers (don't ask why we had to pay to use it then; that's a long legal argument). It was originally designed to carry very short (60 character) messages during times of emergency.
    Because of these points, it does not exist the same in other countries (eg. the EU) and it is directly tied to an actual phone number."
    I'll quote wikipedia:
    "The first proposal which initiated the development of SMS was made by a contribution of Germany and France into the GSM group meeting in February 1985 in Oslo."

    AFAIK neither France, Germany or Norway are part of the US. I know you can't trust everything on wikipedia, but since SMS does exist in other countries I suggest you get your facts straight. When you enter a new country (atleast inside the EU) you get a SMS with the prices for different services.
