Short Messaging Service (SMS) is a text communication service in the world of mobile communications system. It involves using standard communications protocols to exchange short messages between fixed lines or handheld devices, but most commonly used in cell phones. Electronic mail (e-mail) is a way of exchanging digital messages or text communication in the world of internet and computer networks. It involves using Transmission Control Protocol – Internet Protocol (TCP-IP) to send messages in the form of packets to the users over computing devices with internet facility. For sending SMS, one needs to have a cell phone with short messaging service application (which is very common) and a working sim from a telecom service provider. For sending an e-mail, one needs to have a computing device (pc or laptop), an internet connection, and an e-mail address from the internet service provider. In SMS, there’s a word limit of around 160 characters for which the user is charged a certain price. Going over that limit (for the next 160 characters), the user is charged twice and so on. Moreover, most cell phones don’t have the option of going over 1000 characters. In e-mailing, there’s no such word limit and the user can send right from a short message to a long descriptive one. SMS do not carry with themselves the additional benefits of attaching multimedia files or using colorful and different fonts. E-mailing is bundled with the benefits of attaching multimedia files like pictures, songs, other files. E-mails also have an option to use a different sized, colored fonts, colored backgrounds, and themes. SMS captures over the precious memory because they automatically store themselves up in either the phone memory or in any external memory objects like memory cards, hence reducing the amount of memory needed for other stuff. E-mails don’t require the memory of your pc or laptop but utilize the server’s memory to store themselves. SMS are preferred over e-mails when it comes to having quick and long hours of conversation. Whereas, e-mails are preferred if the message to be delivered is long and there’s no cell phone connectivity between the two persons involved or the user doesn’t want to spend money on international SMS.

Email is like placing a letter in the mail box. You can open it whenever you feel like whereas SMS is like tapping on the shoulder and forcefully giving a message in the hand.
