A Flash SMS message is a text message that you can send to an individual that stands out from the rest. Whereas a normal text message would be routed to the recipient's text message inbox, a Flash SMS will display on the screen of the recipient's mobile device. This is a great feature for when you have a text message that you want someone to read immediately.
