Cell phones were provided to patients who did not have them, along with text messaging instructions.

07/01/2014 How Text Messaging Is Helping Victims Of Violence

When a young Malaysian woman, Xin-Ci Chin, was attacked by two men as she entered her car in Kuala Lumpur two years ago, she barely escaped an unknown fate by fighting her abductors and jumping from a moving vehicle.

The episode, which she detailed in a harrowing Facebook post, had a silver lining. At a point in her career where she was looking for new opportunities anyway, it led her to team with a friend, James Khoo, and create a simple but ingenious app that could help other women in the same situation.

Since launching a year ago on iOS and Android, Watch Over Me has attracted 140,000 users all over the world, with the majority so far located in Southeast Asia.

07/30/2014 Text Messaging Is Not Ruining Grammar

It is not surprising that many teachers, parents, and young people themselves feel concerned about this constant exposure to non-standard written English. It seems quite plausible that frequently seeing to - too written as 2, or people written as ppl, might mean that these kinds of spellings could start to creep into students formal writing.

Fortunately, in recent years, the research has returned a fairly robust conclusion.

06/19/2014 Will Text Messaging Help Kids?

Text messaging is unequivocally the No. 1 communication tool for the younger generation. According to the Nielsen consumer research group, teenagers send an average of 114 text messages per day. Meanwhile, 39 percent make or receive voice calls daily, and only 6 percent of teens use e-mail daily, according to Pew Research.

05/27/2014 Apple Faces Lawsuit for Missing Text Messages

iPhone owners are reportedly finding that they no longer receive text messages  after switching to an Android or other device. This is due to an old bug in Apples iMessage service. The problem is caused by the way Apples iMessage has been developed. It is a separate messaging system unlike any other SMS app and Apple uses end-to-end encryption, which means it is totally secure. When a user signs up for iMessage, their number is stored in a separate database that is accessed when another iDevice wants to ping them with a message. So your contacts device knows the other person is using iMessage and does not send an SMS but an iMessage IM. For numbers not in the database, an SMS is sent, which would entail carrier charges.

However, the problem arises when switching to another device. When your contacts with iMessage send you a message, it keeps looking for your Apple device ID, as it had been registered in the past. So it keeps trying to send you an iMessage IM instead of an SMS. The SMS is never delivered and naturally, the iMessage is not either.

This has led to a new class action lawsuit in Federal District initiated by Adrienne Moore who switched from an iPhone to a new Samsung Galaxy S5. Moores suit sought class action status for all users who may be in a similar situation, which could end up running into thousands of potential victims. It asks for Apple to fix iMessage so that users can exit the ecosystem without any issues and has asked for punitive damages to the affected class members.
