Texting celebrates its 21st birthday today, remaining the most popular form of communication.
The world's first ever text message was sent on December 3, 1992 when Neil Papworth, a software programmer from Reading, sent an early festive greeting to a colleague.
As mobile phones didn't have keyboards then, Papworth typed the message 'Merry Christmas' on a PC and sent it to Richard Jarvis' mobile phone.
