This is actually a pretty cool amazing thing going on in South Africa. The First National Bank ATMs will now send ou a text message with your temporary PIN to complete the transaction at the ATM, rather than have you forget what you pin is or lose your bank card. There’s other things you can do with SMS messages in South Africa as well, like buy groceries, pay your bills or get life insurance.

With use of old technology like this, it makes you wonder what else can be done with SMS messaging rather than getting everyone to jump on board with NFC payments where you have to buy a device that has the new NFC chip installed. And you thought North America were the trend setters…
