Support for multi-lingual/Unicode characters enable display of SMS messages sent in a multitude of languages.

SMS Voting

SMS Trivia
Q. What is a fun interactive way to keep customers coming back? A. Trivia! To join in the game users need only text their answer to questions appearing on-screen. At the end of each question players can see how they and others have done.

Common game settings including question categories and timing options can be recalled as needed making it extremely easy for operators to begin a new game from the operator interface or an authorized users mobile phone.
