Make New Year simple, schedule it
Every year in the UK, in the half an hour before and after midnight on the 31st December literally millions of text messages are sent, so much so in a short space of time that the mobile operators can’t handle it. So your New Year texts don’t arrive for ages.
Most people will have some recollection of the trickle of texts that come through for the rest of the night that were sent in that timeframe. So what’s the answer – you schedule your New Year texts in advance before you go out partying.
If you schedule your personal messages in advance for the time you want using NetMessenger they are guaranteed to reach their destination within a couple of minutes.
Not only that, but of course it is cheaper and easier than trying to type on your phone while someone is trying to get you involved in singing Auld Lang Syne. And you won’t beep on your friends’ phones at 5.00 am when they are just getting off to sleep!

SMS messaging is proving to be an essential tool for communication between schools, students, parents and staff. SMS messages can be broadcast from schools to parents notifying them of sudden school closures for bad weather, changes of schedule for sporting events or transport delays. And much more too!
People have their mobiles within arm’s reach about 22 hours of every day. That means even while they are sleeping! It makes sense then, that if you want to remind someone of an important event (an appointment with your small business for example) you should use their mobile.
