Mobile phones brought rapid, extensive, and personal communication to our lives. Parallel to Mobile phone development, Marketers started to consider mobile phone as a marketing tool to reach their consumers. SMS marketing is the most basic and widely used method of mobile marketing since the early days of mobile marketing. Beside of that, Smartphone development changed the Mobile Phone market characteristics and user habits, hence marketing communication methods changed and extended with many alternatives. The question is; after smartphone development, SMS marketing is still affecting consumer behaviour or not?
