SMS via Wifi

when's Telstra going to offer sms over wifi to all devices not just Telstra to Telstra. I see that Optus & Vodafone do it, for a company that big notes itself on technology you seem to be very far behind.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: SMS via Wifi

SMS via WiFi is not essential to Telstra's (or any other provider's) business, so I do not see much incentive for them to do so... SMS is inherently bad product on it's own and doing it over wifi makes it even more complicated and unreliable... Why would I bother if I was Telstra???
