Wow, the first text message was sent nearly 25 years ago. 

Yes, on December 3, 1992 the first text message was sent by an engineer in England.  He sent a message from his computer to his friend's cell phone.

If you're wondering what the first text message read it was, "Merry Christmas."

Now, we text non-stop and according to a recent study, half of people say messaging has pretty much replaced all other forms of communication. Yes, we rarely talk to each other now, we simply text away.

Happy Birthday to the text message, you've come a long way!!! Cheers!
