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.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.
Even a mosquito doesn't get a pat on the back until it starts to work.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

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.
