== History ==
+
 
+
SMS was originally designed for [[GSM]], but most all of the large digital mobile phone providers provide the ability to send messages to other phones via the SMS.

== Forensics Standpoint ==
+
Most modern phones store the SMS in their internal memory, rather than on the SIM card; in this case forensics should target the phone itself. If the phone does not store the SMS on the SIM card, it can be reconfigured to do so (whether this is possible and how it is done depends on the phone brand and model).
+
 
+
If the phone stores the SMS on the SIM card, forensics should target the card; there is a chance to recover a deleted SMS.
+
 
+
This is possible because some phones will only mark the SMS as deleted (instead of overwriting it with 0 or 1 bits); the text of the SMS will continue to reside on the card until a new SMS is received and the space will be overwritten with the contents of the new message.
