SMS Chat in the market
SMS Chat was first implemented for the main GSM operators in Yemen on July 2005 as DardaCHAT where soon following its free trial period, it quickly gained its reputation as an innovative Mobile SMS chat service.
The structure of the service facilitates the creation of groups of chatters that share similar ideas, perceptions, intellect through the different chat channels that are open to any chatter, such as One-to-One Chat and One-to-Many Chat.
Each of the above channels has certain characteristics; One-to-One Chat channel gives a pair of chatters to chat in complete privacy; whereas for those who form a group, One-to-Many channel is the most adequate channel, forming a certain group of chatters, exchanging their interests.
