    When one enters a text message on a cell phone it is translated into Radio Frequence waves. These are transmitted though the air to a cell phone tower. That tower then relays the message to the receiver's carrier. The carrier then finds the last cell phone tower with the phone number of its customers phone. The text message is then relayed to the tower. It converts it into RF waves. The phone receives those waves, decodes them, and tells the receiver they have a text message.
