UK Gave up on SMS

UK Gave up on SMS

British mobile users gave up on SMS and switched to online messaging services (Whatsapp, Snapchat) or mobile email. Industry experts confirm that the number of SMS sent in 2013 dropped by 7 billion and amounted to 145 billion.


For two decades of existence, it’s the first time that texting dropped in popularity. Industry observers claim that it’s a clear sign that the technology is on its way out. Apparently, the heyday of the text message is over and it had reached a tipping point.

In the meantime, use of mobile phones was stronger than ever and it is sure that trillions of instant messages will be sent instead of text messages. The main problem is that SMS is very expensive, compared to online services, where you just pay for traffic. In addition, apps like Whatsapp allow communicating with groups of people and enable users to send pictures and videos.

As you know, iMessage is free with an iPhone, and Snapchat is accumulating users rather than charging them. SMS costs money and is mostly used with elderly people who aren’t socialized online. The predictions are that the number of texts sent will fall to 140 billion in 2014, while the number of instant messages would rocket to at least 300 billion.

It should be noted that the UK has a close relationship with text messages: the first SMS was sent from Vodafone’s headquarters in Newbury in 1992, and in 1993 the first mobile phone capable of texting was made by Nokia, with the British sending a billion SMS a month by 2001.

Mr_T_Cat avatarLol, they may be down but 140 billion is sure not peanuts in revenue to the phone operators that are still charging for the service. I wonder who will be the first to realize and offer it for free. In an attempt to claw some users back. Because even if the number of text is dropping it is still going to be with us for a good while to come.
Interesting story though.

Bloody cheeky young bugger...You really mean that they have better things to do with their lives and prefer to socialise in the "flesh".

milktrayman avatarThere is one big flaw in your argument. Pretty much every contract or pay as you go now has free unlimited sms included in the UK, so it in fact costs nothing. It's just not as cool for the young kids and messaging services also have the feature of telling you when the last time that person logged in and whether your gf has read your message and is ignoring you because she's probably shagging someone else, the cheating whore. lol
