Yahoo IMs AT&T Wireless Customers

Showing their faith in wireless messaging in the US, Yahoo has removed a button on their instant messaging software which had been for making internet-based phone calls, and replaced it with a buttom to send text messages to anyone using an AT&T Wireless phone with mMode. With all the talk of converging instant messaging platforms, it’s good to see companies realizing that the computer isn’t the only device for text messaging either. The nice thing about text messaging is that it can be used anywhere at any time – and converging all the various text messaging solutions, whether on computers or other devices makes sense.
