T-Mobile being sued for pulling the plug on a New York company for passing Controlled substance messages through their SMS service.

Light Reading, please verify all original information from listed sources;

EZ Texting, a New York-based company that helps businesses send mass marketing text messages, filed suit yesterday with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The company provides support as the SMS infrastructure, for a robust type of information extraction functionality that allows consumers to text a specific message or Mobile Listing to a phone number and get more information about advertised products and services. By using a Common Short Code SMS application EZ Texting is not allowed to pass certain types of information over a carriers network, without first submitting proper documentation and receiving written permission from said carrier(s). (This is solely based on the terms and conditions read by a short code aggregator company out of Seattle, WA by the name of OpenMarket.com. As texting and cell phones usage become more popular, especially with the baby boomer generation, cell phone carriers can expect controversial information to keep popping up. Hopefully with the advancement in cell phone browser capabilities and smart phones, a secure happy medium will be reached to ensure information is not being accessed by improper users, etc.. . Please verify all facts form the original article and companies listed, our post is lightly touching on a much bigger scenario and we are in no way trying to take any part of the alleged accusations out of context in any way what so ever.

Thank you for reading….
