World’s first SMS text message sent 25 years ago – Technology & Science – CBC News

The humble text message is getting a big thumbs-up today. Twenty-five years ago, a British software engineer sat down at his computer and sent the world’s first “Short Message Service” or SMS.

British engineer Neil Papworth sent the first SMS (Short Message Service) from a computer to a mobile phone belonging to the then-director of Vodafone Richard Jarvis, he told Sky News.

The message read simply: “Merry Christmas.”
