Text messaging (SMS) is a huge part of the mobile phenomenon. These are short messages you can exchange with other cell phone users. They are especially convenient when you do not want to make a call or if you are in a situation that does not permit you to make a call. With Samsung phones, sending a text message is a very simple process that takes only minutes to complete.


Step 1

Select "Menu" on your Samsung phone by pressing the "Left" soft-key. Select "Text Messages" and select "Create."
