We call them 'texts' in the uk and also use text as a verb. SMS is the official name but noone uses it in real life here.

So we say

I'll send you a text when I get there.

I'll text you when I get there.

Are you serious Nona? Here in Italy "SMS" is most used. Emotion: thinking

YoHf, youcan believe Nona. SMS is used over here in Germany as well but in English you speak about either

- a text

or

- to text.

If you used "SMS" people would most likely look at you with big round eyes. They might understand what you mean but no one uses it. Ever. (And neither do I when I speak to my English or American friends)
Yes Yohf, I'm sure different countries have different names for it.

Nona The BritYes Yohf, I'm sure different countries have different names for it.

I see. Thanks nona.
And do Americans also say 'text'/'to text' or do they use 'text message'/to text message'?

I'll text (message) you when I get there
