    Please SMS me

    Please SMS me whenever you need help.

    Does this make sense?

    Re: Please SMS me

    Yes, as long as you're sure the person you're saying it to knows what SMS means.

    I'd say 'Please text me....'

    Re: Please SMS me

    I've found that my European colleagues use "SMS" where we would just say "text."

    That's interesting. I thought that 'SMS' was the American version. I only 'text'.

    Re: Please SMS me

    I've never heard anyone in America use the term. Maybe someone explaining the features of a new cell phone ("It does both SMS and MMS messaging.")
