It all boils down to what users want today and tomorrow.  IMO - users want
SMS today and are going to keep wanting it for a long long time because it's
quick, works on most all phones (not just smartphones), and sovles a
problem.  I'm just not clear on how it comes into play for a VoIP/ITSP.  SMS
on an IP Phone - I'd ask - Why?  IP Phones sit nex to computers (for the
most part).  Computers use IM (its quicker, easier, and free).  Maybe
Softphone on a PC?  But again I ask why for same argument as w/ IP Phone?
Am I missing something (likley since I'm not entirely a voice guy at this
juncture in my career).

The problem is quick, easy and instant communiactions.  The solution today
is SMS (smart and 'dumb' phones) and IM (PC's and SmartPhones).  What's the
solution tomorrow is the question I guess...
