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
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.
