It’s Been 20 Years Since the First Text Message

20 Years Since the 1st Text Message

History moves quick! The first text message was sent on Dec 3, 1992, making text messages over 20 years old.

The very first SMS message was sent from a computer to a cellphone. And what did the first message say? ‘Merry Christmas’.

For a trip down cellphone memory lane, some photos of the evolution of the cellphone: http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/05/the-evolution-of-cell-phone-design-between-1983-2009/
