    I have no sms package

    Hi,

    Is "I have no SMS package" correct?

    Re: I have no sms package

    It's grammatically correct. I guess it means I don't have a texting plan,which is how I'd say it in American English.

    Nowadays it's next to impossible to have a cell phone in the States that doesn't support texting.

    Re: I have no sms package

    I'd use "My [mobile] plan doesn't include texts". However, as GoesStation already indicated, that's an unlikely scenario unless you have a PAYG contract (Pay As You Go) which means nothing is included. You pay for everything as you go along and the cost is taken off whatever amount you topped your phone up with at the beginning of the month.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I have no sms package

    I'd probably substitute 'plan' for 'package' in the original.

    Until a couple of months ago, I actually didn't have any texting plan for my phone, although I had the capability to get and receive them. I just paid for each individual text, which was fine for years as I detest texting.
