iOS 5's iMessage chops carrier SMS routing traffic

I was pleasantly surprised to find I could send messages at midnight between New Years Eve and New Years Day for the first time in years, albeit only to my iMessage capable friends, but it's a good way of avoiding the phone network when it's overloaded with SMS traffic.

I also have a few friends abroad so these fall outside a normal SMS bundle, but iMessage makes the world smaller too.
