Reports from Iran say that the country has unblocked SMS messaging services for the first time since the contested election. Texts, as well as social networking and blogging services, were used by protestors demonstrating against the election result in the country.
There had been texting restrictions since June 11, a day before the elections.
However, Iranian new agency Tabnak.ir says that while the service is back up and running, it’s having problems. Messages that are up to three weeks old are being sent, and some people are receiving multiple repeated messages.
Defeated opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi had published a statement on Wednesday demanding what he termed the government’s illegal interference in communication via phone, text, and online.
