Wagging a wireless common tongue
Posted: 07-Nov-2001 [Source: CNet]

[Canadian carriers connect their systems allowing all their subscribers to send and receive text messages regardless of the carrier they use.]

by Ben Charny -- "Canadian wireless providers have passed what many consider the biggest hurdle keeping North American cell phone owners from sending short messages, those 160-character messages now traded nearly a billion times a day in Europe and Asia.

"Four Canadian carriers--Bell Mobility, Microcell Connexions, Rogers AT&T Wireless and Telus Mobility--said Tuesday that they've made it possible for the millions of Canadian wireless subscribers to exchange short messages over their cell phones, regardless of which carrier they use.

"Industry analysts say Tuesday's development in Canada might prod the same American carriers into a similar arrangement. Currently in the United States, short messages can only be sent between subscribers of the same carrier. A Verizon Wireless customer, for instance, can't send a short message to a Sprint customer.
