The message was sent to the mobile phone on December 3, 1992. It was written by a Briton named Neil Papworth from Sema Group Telecoms. The company was engaged in creating technologies for Vodafone.

With the help of the first SMS in history, the man wished his boss Richard Jarvis a Merry Christmas. According to the CEO of Vodafone, the transmission of this message was a watershed moment in the history of mobile technology.

In 1999, seven years after the first SMS was sent via Vodafone, it was finally possible to send text messages over multiple networks, which accelerated their use and increased popularity.

The proceeds from the sale were promised to be invested in charity- the money will be sent to the UN Refugee Agency.
