MetadataShow full item record
Short Messaging Service (SMS)-based mobile information services have become increasingly common around the world, especially among users with low-end mobile devices. This paper presents the design and implementation of TextMail, an SMS service which allows users to check emails via a text message where email service can be accessed only when the user wants it. With the development of wireless technology, more people are using their smart phones to access the Internet. However, lots of users, especially in developing countries, cannot afford a smart phone and are still using the low-end cell phones. The aim of this project is to develop an SMS system to enable low-end cell phones to access internet services. In particular, a service called TextMail, allowing users to check emails through text messages even if they do not have Internet access, is provided.
