Sending and receiving text messages on computer is an effective way of communication, especially when you need to send group SMSes. This is because text messaging on a mobile phone is expensive and it also forces you to type with your phone's tiny keyboard, which is slow and inconvenient at all. Most people are so attached to their phones and SMS are widely read. You can be sure that the intended recipients will get the message instantly. Also, group texting from a computer is comprehensive and has unlimited usage which is not the case with a phone. Indeed, when you are sitting at your desk, have you ever thought to give away your mobile phone, navigate to your computer and do the messaging job with the computer directly?
