Get one and only one SMS message if you didn't get one this holiday

Every holiday people get thousands of SMS messages with greetings: We wish you happy new year. Have a great holiday. etc. etc. Its nice to get good wishes from friends, and even sometimes to read witty inserts from some service you didn't really register to, but why not read them at your leisure, without cluttering your phone's inbox? So here's the solution:

Phone company continues to get revenue from tons of stupid SMS messages, paid by the senders, but you don't see them anymore. At least not as annoying text messages.

You get at most one message per holiday saying: Friends sent you a Passover Greeting. You then log in with the password given on that single text message (or request a password change via SMS) and can see all the messages people sent you for the holiday. If you don't disable the feature, an hour before the holiday you also get a summary or if too long, at least a count of how many greetings you received.

Achieved by a special license and cooperation with the cell carriers.

       Pass what over?   

       The salt?   

       The idea illustrates another reason why I don't have a mobile phone.

       You don't have a mobile phone?!! So you have a life. What are you doing on halfbakery?   

       I just re-edited the for clarity - I hope.   

       You get to "pass, over" the messages without delving into them, until you have time, and then you can have them read to you, while you are reading halfbakery.

       OK, I think this is one idea where the name defies the cause. Its a general idea for SMS greetings.   

       Please judge it at that.

       Defies or defines?   

       And would you happen to have any Grey Poupon?
