Out of the 160 characters of a standard SMS, 160by2 offers only 80 characters to the user to send out their personal SMS. The rest of the 80 characters are for Advertisement. Delivering contextual advertisements and related links is the key to provide you this FREE service. 160by2 stores and processes your SMS messages.
