India imposes text message limit...

The telecoms regulator in India has put a cap on the number of text messages which can be sent from a mobile phone.

Under the new rules, no one will be able to send more than 100 texts in a day, officials say.

The ruling is expected to be a big relief for millions of mobile phone users who have to deal with dozens of unsolicited text messages every days.

Subscribers can register their numbers with the "national do not call" list by sending a message to 1909.

India has made several attempts in the past to rein in the pesky tele-marketing firms who bombard mobile phone users with unwanted commercial messages and calls. Full story...
