I never use to get sms spam at Cell C but since porting to Vodacom I even got smses on Christmas day. What is that website where you sign up to opt out of this stuff?
Smartphones have apps running all the time. It's just a question of using one IM messaging standard. Whatsapp for example is integrated into the phone system as much as SMS is.SMS is MUUUUCH better than IM for company -> client text communication.

IM requires an application running and ready to receive the communique.
SMS requires a working cellular phone, and the phone does not even have to be on.

As for always being on - the messages get sent to the server and you retrieve them like an SMS. The one difference is no delay as with an SMS sent on New Years.
Wish service providers would allow you to block these spam sms's
