How about an SMS that has all the emotions of a voice call, not to mention the convenience of a normal text message? Well, it’s for real. Welcome to the age of voice SMS or talking SMS, a new value-added service that is being offered in the country by both CDMA and GSM operators, starting this April.
A talking SMS enables the user to record his or her voice and send it across like a simple text message, and the user can retrieve it at his leisure. Sending a voice SMS is as simple as sending a text message. The only difference is that instead of keying in the text, the subscriber would have to record his message and forward it.
