Short Message Service (SMS) is a cost effective, fun way to send and receive text messages using your cellphone. Sending an SMS is cheaper than making a cellphone call (refer to the latest MTC tariff sheet). You can send up to 160 characters per message. Before you send an SMS, you need to set up your service centre number.
Configuring your Service Centre Number
NOTE: You must press +, not 00. If you have problems locating the plus key, check the cellphone manual that was issued with your cellphone.

Receiving an SMS
You can send SMS messages to any other GSM cellphone user in the world with whose network MTC has an agreement.
Remember to insert + and the country code when sending a message to another cellphone user outside Namibia.
