This work proposes a novel algorithm to maximize the utilization of bandwidth for any text based application. The algorithm is used for real-time online text chatting, as well as offline SMS in mobile phones. Text is handled transparently without any modification in the core network. The proposed algorithm is an application of ‘A-M’ compression framework. Applying such algorithm will save at least 25% and up to 90% of the bandwidth depending on the context of the transferred data. Other applications such as email, web browsing, etc…will also gain from applying such algorithm. This paper demonstrated two types of applications; the real-time text chatting, and the mobile SMS application. The algorithm depends on a pre-defined dictionary of maximum size of 16 Kbyte installed on the client side or on the cloud near each client.
