Here are some of the major wireless carrier text messaging formats. Keep in mind that when you use this format to send a message to another pone, the recipient is usually limited to receiving only the FIRST 140-160 characters of your message, which includes the "to", "from" & "subject" info.

IMPORTANT: In order to receive a text message, the recipient must have a messaging-capable phone AND must be a subscriber to a messaging plan with his/her carrier.
