8 June, 2005Wap Oneline Wireless VAS Evolution Level One: SMS Capabilities Normally, the very first wireless VAS is the SMS. First there is one-way SMS, which has only the capability to receive text message alerts. Then it evolves to two-way text messaging that allows subscribers to communicate not only via voice but also via text messaging.

9 June, 2005Wap Oneline Wireless VAS Evolution Level One: SMS Capabilities To make the SMS even more attractive, service content providers, SMS Center Vendors and Wireless Operators began creating new uses for the SMS.

Thus, SMS billing based on short codes was integrated to the SMS Centers and to Operators billing systems. MO (billing CDR issued when subscriber sends an SMS to the short code) MT (billing CDR issued when subscriber receives an SMS from the application using a certain short code). Premium SMS messaging was born.
