MetroPCS adds free group messaging service textPlus
Free group texting solution textPlus is now available via prepaid operator MetroPCS, heralding mobile communications technology provider GOGII's first direct carrier agreement. The textPlus service delivers ad-supported group texting services across device platforms including Android and iOS, offering both mobile applications and a permanent shortcode--the shortcode-based MetroPCS deal enables customers on the carrier's $45 and $50 service plans to transmit messages to multiple contacts at once, at no extra charge.
GOGII rolled out textPlus in June 2009. Its user network now spans 24 million mobile subscribers, corresponding to over 3.5 billion messages sent and more than 9 million downloads.
