According to the CTIA, all of the major U.S. wireless network operators have agreed to the feature set of Enhanced Messaging (EM) services. EM is a presence-enabled mobile messaging service that allows for richer real-time text messaging and communications than that offered by traditional SMS or MMS. The Group Messaging feature lets multiple users interact with text-based messages on their phones, as well as multi-media files within a group communication session. EM is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2009, and will be inter-operable between the U.S. carriers.

Finalllyyyyyyyy...at last

I've often wondered when something better and more intuitive was going to come along and replace SMS as we know it...thank god this has finally come to light...finally we will know if someones phone is on and has network connectivity to receive a message, finally we will know that a message has been read (for when you text flakey people) and most importantly thank the lord we will have more than 160 characters to work with. This is awesome news!!! This is probably the most welcomed feature since polyphonic ringtones 😛 Thank you Phonescoop this was a great early Christmas present!!!
🙂 definately a good developement.
