SMS & MMS both are two diferent type of messages which one can send through the mobile phone.SMS is short message service which allows user to send SMS's while MMS is multimedia message service which allows user to send MMS's.the major difference between both lies in the content which can be send by using these two different services.with SMS you can send only text message with emotion icon(smilies).1 sms contain 160 character and the cost of sending is almost nothing.but with MMS,as the name implies you can send any multimedia file along with the text.the multimedia file can be anything like images,videos,tones,recordings,greetings & animations.the cost of MMS is more than SMS.basically the cost of MMS is determined by the quantity of data that is to b sent.NOTE for sending MMS's internet connection is mandatory.no such limitation in SMS.

The difference b/w sms and mms is that SmS stands for short message service.In sms you can send a message of up to 160 characters to another device. Longer messages can be split up into several parts. MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service and this type of text messaging is an evolution of the SMS. With a MMS, you can send a message including pictures, video or audio content to another device. It is very easy to send a photo taken with a camera phone to another phone. Because the size of the message is defined in kilobytes, a MMS can contain a lot more information than a SMS. Be careful, carriers can sometimes charge high fees for data transfer over their network if it’s not included in your plan.
