Cell-Phone Text-Messaging for Rallies

Rally Power

The power of text messaging on cell phones was brought to my attention by an activist who explained that the immigration demonstrations in early 2006 occurred because of them.

Accessible to the Poor

Apparaently, the illegal immigrants do not have the money, credit ratings, and means to purchase Internet accesses or land-line phones, but they can afford monthly cell phones like the ones sold at MetroPC.

Other Features

Furthermore, the cell phone is portable making it ideal for organizing a rally. The part I like about it is that the message is on the phone, can be read at any time, can be sent back with a response, and the response can be stored to be developed at different times.

Practice is Needed

I am currently starting to learn how to use text-messages. I am finding it takes practice.
