The first SMS was 20


How many of you have ever thought, when it was first sent SMS-message? 20 years ago, a British engineer Neil Pepvort (Neil Papworth) sent the first SMS with the following content: “Merry Christmas.” At that time he did not even care about the number of characters in the SMS message and how popular SMS-messages will be in the world.

“At the time I thought it would be a good way for fast communication between employees’

– Said Mr. Pepvort.

A year later, Nokia grabbed the idea, and all of its phones support SMS. A little later, Nokia and Samsung simplified for users to enter text in T9 numeric keypad.

Today, the popularity of SMS-messages is reduced due to pressure from the service BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), iMessage and WhatsApp.
