Update @ 17:50 IST: My first message made up of the text “Merry Christmas my dear friend” (30 characters long) and sent to myself came in real quick (less than a minute). My second message made up of the text “ABCDEFGHIJ”x10 (exactly 110 characters long) and sent to myself and my friend seems to be out there somewhere! Or does the system know that I am using it to send generic text messages and not greetings?
Update @ 18:01 IST: Yep. The “ABCDEFGHIJ”x10 message arrived almost simultaneously on both our mobiles. The system does not discriminate between generic text messages and greetings after all. Happy greeting…err…messaging.
