Use our Short Messaging Service (SMS) to text people whenever you want, wherever
If your cellphone comes with predictive text, use this function to speed up your
SMS typing. Also, check if your cellphone supports Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS)
– a function that lets you add sounds or animations to an SMS (not the same as MMS).
Please view your applicable price plan rates to see what you’ll be paying. SMSs have a 160-character limit. If you
exceed this, you’ll be charged for each SMS that’s sent to complete
your message. You can get five free MTN-to-MTN SMSs daily by registering with and
logging into My MTN now.
