Philippine the texting capital (SMS) the service was little less than the previous year as the people used new ways to greet their friends and relatives rather than using the traditional SMS and voice messages. MMS, Skype and Snapchat were the new emerging messaging tools with the help of the Smartphone and the other hand held devices.
