SMS भेजने वाले नील ने सुनाया रोचक किस्सा
दुनिया का पहला SMS ब्रिटिश प्रोगामर नील पापवोर्थ ने 3 दिसंबर, 1992 को भेजा था। नील एक डेवलपर और टेस्‍ट इंजीनियर के तौर पर काम कर रहे थे। तब उन्‍होंने इस SMS को कंप्‍यूटर से अपने दूसरे साथी रिचर्ड जारविस को भेजा था। रिचर्ड तब कंपनी के डायरेक्‍टर थे। उनको ये SMS ऑर्बिटेल 901 हैंडसेट पर भेजा गया था। नील ने 2017 में कहा था कि 1992 में जब उन्होंने SMS भेजा था तब इस बात का पता नहीं था कि ये इतना पॉपुलर हो जाएगा। तब उन्‍होंने अपने बच्‍चों को भी बताया था कि दुनिया का पहला टेक्स्ट मैसेज उन्होंने ही भेजा था।

रिफ्यूजी एजेंसी को दी जाएगी नीलामी की रकम
वोडाफोन ने अपने बयान में बताया कि इस SMS की नीलामी से जो भी रमक मिलेगी, उसे यूनाइटेड नेशन हाई कमिशनर फॉर रिफ्यूजी (UNHCR) को दिया जाएगा। ये यूएन की रिफ्यूजी एजेंसी है। 1992 में जब पहला मैसेज भेजा गया था, इसके बाद साल 1995 आते-आते केवल 0.4 फीसदी ही लोग मैसेज औसतन हर महीने भेजते थे।
