The Technology in the cell phone Every phone has an SMS (short message service) chip An SMS chip allows your phone to get information from other phones or get internet accesses. Without the SMS chip, your phone could not be able to connect with other phones or use the internet. Cell phones use rechargeable batteries which provides the power required to run the phone.
