What is SMS (Short Message Service)?

SMS stands for Short Message Service. It is a communication protocol used for sending short text messages between mobile devices. It is one of the most widely used messaging services globally and has been in existence since the early days of mobile phones.

SMS allows users to send and receive text messages of up to 160 characters in length, although modern systems can concatenate multiple messages to form longer messages. SMS messages are typically sent and received over cellular networks, but they can also be sent and received over Wi-Fi networks.

Furthermore, SMS messages are typically included in mobile service plans or charged at a nominal fee, making them accessible to a wide range of users.

SMS was first defined in the GSM standard in 1985. The first text message was sent in 1992 by Neil Papworth, a British engineer working for Sema Group, to Richard Jarvis, the director of Vodafone. The text of the message was “Merry Christmas.”
