iMessage/BBM uses data namely by the relation to the phone, and are thus more vulnerable to instability. You lose your data connection, or travel a lot in and out of areas where there is no data coverage, and at the same time have communication going with iMessage/BBM, chances are that the messages disappears or takes a long time to reach the absolute present.


The world is bigger than the رسائل sms and iMessage/BBM

Now it turns out, however, that the mobile world is larger than both Apple, BlackBerry, and Norwegian telecom operators.


With the prevalence of smart phones in General has grown up a forest of alternative applications one can communicate via your mobile phone. Some are run by the major social networks, especially Facebook, which earlier this year launched its own Facebook Messenger for mobile. The application is tailored to communicate directly from mobile to mobile via Facebook's chat/messaging system.

In addition, there are applications that WhatsApp, Vibert, Skype and a load of other similar applications.


So one would perhaps think that the sum of all these opportunities to the less expensive communication allows the SMS will soon have to dead?


Technology site Techcrunch was very positive about Apple's "nådestøt" against the SMS when the technology was introduced with iOS5, while other teknologivitere are not as positive, and believe that to impose a proprietary and closed system of communication is a blast from the past.


Although the user well, both you and I both iMessage, Facebook and a host of other applications instead of SMS these days? There must be enough to crack the SMS once and for all?


SMS is by no means dead. Yet.

A chat with the two largest mobile operators in Norway, however, draws a slightly different picture of the situation than what the most technology fixated of us might think.
