Using SMS on a farm or a remote area:
Living on a farm means that you are more than likely in a remote area, with very little cellphone signal, leaving the possibility of receiving e-mail messages very slim, if anything, it would be merely impossible to have a stable connection to communicate via e-mail. This is where SMS used on a farm can be so powerful.
How strong does your signal have to be to receive an SMS on a farm?
SMS requires your cellphone handset to be in GSM range. It does not require you to have 3G, 4G, EDGE, H/H+ or LTE. If you have even the slightest bit of signal, you can receive SMS messages to your cellphone handset, making the possibility of receiving SMS very high, and a lot more reliable than other communication methods.
