Virgin Mobile has introduced the concept of an eternal text message. The 'texts into space' service transmits a text message via satellite into space with the recipient able to track its progress as it makes its endless journey through the universe.
The service is available on any mobile phone for the cost of a normal text message. Users will be able to send a loved one that ‘eternal' declaration of love, while for an additional £9.95 the recipient will receive a formal ‘certificate of transmission' from SentForever.com.
Recipients will also be invited to receive email updates as the message passes space-related landmarks, presumably the Milky Way and alike.
To send a text into space, send the message to the Virgin Mobile short code 80995. For more information or to track the progress of a message, visit www.sentforever.com/virginmobile.
