ICE Giving Test Run To Foreign Text Messaging

February 8, 2008
Now u can txt yr frnds :-) in other countries from your Costa Rican cell phone, thanks to a new initiative by the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) currently in the testing phase.
Though the international messages cost the same as any other text message (1.5 colones), they do come with a catch: International text messages can be sent only to phones on certain networks.
In the United States, only T-Mobile phones can get the ICE text messages, while in Nicaragua only Movistar phones will be able to receive them.
Also, international texting will work only on GSM phones, that is any cell phone whose number starts with “8.”
