Default There's a technical reason for this...

It's probably just using the same infrasture that OZ uses for their mainstream feature phone release. Since the majority of low end devices don't have data plans, transferring this content via SMS is the most efficient way of doing this. Also, most people who have these low end feature phones that would want to use an IM application likely have unlimited texting plans, so it doesn't matter.

Good find for people not in the know, but there's a reason for it...
