SMS - Short Messaging Service - 160 character limit (per design specs). Text only.
SMS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MMS - Multi Media Service - SMS + media (picture)...

In short

SMS = text messaging

MMS = Picture messaging.

SMS works without a data plan. 160 character limit per message (including spaces).

MMS requires a BlackBerry data plan, and also has no limits to how long the message can be.
