A day like today has sent the first story story: what did he say?


December 3, 2018

On December 3, even in 1992, Neil Papworth Vodafone engineer perpetuated – perhaps unknown – the world of communications. That day, successfully send the first story message to a mobile phone. It was a very short content: it was just Christmas greetings said "Merry Christmas", that is, "Merry Christmas".

I think it would be useful for mobile phones to receive some text messages over a few years. The initiative was mentioned in a telecommunications conference in 1984: the Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen presented the concept first, it seemed almost as science fiction.

Eight years later, Papworth sent a text from his computer to his cell phone, and began a new stage in the method of communication. The following year, in 1993, Finland's Riku Pihkonen sent the first message between two mobile phones.

Originally believed missed or short messages "alerts" SMS was more than ten years old on mobile carriers, at the price, delivery and slow reception. However, in 2006, text messaging was estimated at an estimated $ 800 million worldwide.

SMS (short message service) has been the pioneer in messaging services that are currently generated and is more than everyday use, such as WhatsApp, which is perhaps the most commonly used. Nowadays, its use has been slightly reduced in recent years with these platforms and the appearance of free applications.
