I just realized what my new phone "beeps" when it receives an SMS.

di di dit - dah dah - di di dit


Snerk.

Finally, after more than a year of constantly reviewing a memorization card, it's starting to sink in.

Most phones in England used to morse that on SMS messages when SMS first appeared there, many years ago. It took me a year or two to realise what it was :)

And here I was trying to figure out whether irt was Beethoven's Fifth, or a theme from Star Wars...

Re: doh!

It is, in fact, Morse for "SMS".

Re: doh!

What amuses me most is that I haven't done Morse code since high-school (which is to say approximate 1/2 my lifetime ago!!) and I recognized that before thinking about it as morse for SMS :) Some things just .... subvert braincells :)

Hmmm I may have to add you to my SMS.

I've seen models with the option for the longer incoming indicator, too.
That one morses "connecting people".

(All trademarks etc and so on.)
