Accessing internet through text messages

It’s not necessary to have internet connection on your phone to access the web. A mere text message sent to a particular number can get you basic data from sites like Google and Wikipedia. Text-based applications also provide information like live update of cricket scores.
Companies like txtWeb, Google and Innoz Technologies have such services.
At the heart of the technology is adoption of a different method to access the internet. These services are popular because of three reasons: one, majority of mobile phones in India are low-end ones with just ‘talk-and-text’ features; two, many people who have smartphones don’t have a data plan; and three, those who have data plan, use it sparingly considering poor bandwidth and high cost.
