The first action plan of the CEPT Group GSM was approved in December 1982, requesting that "The services and facilities offered in the public switched telephone networks and public data networks ...should be available in the mobile system." The GSM is optimized for telephony, since this was identified as its main application.Over time, this issue was eliminated by switch billing instead of billing at the SMSC and by new features within SMSCs to allow blocking of foreign mobile users sending messages through it.By the end of 2000, the average number of messages reached 35 per user per month, SMS was originally designed as part of GSM, but is now available on a wide range of networks, including 3G networks.According to Matti Makkonen, an engineer at Nokia at the time, the Nokia 2010, which was released in January 1994, was the first mobile phone to support composing SMSes easily.One factor in the slow takeup of SMS was that operators were slow to set up charging systems, especially for prepaid subscribers, and eliminate billing fraud which was possible by changing SMSC settings on individual handsets to use the SMSCs of other operators.
Adding text messaging functionality to mobile devices began in the early 1980s.However, not all text messaging systems use SMS, and some notable alternative implementations of the concept include J-Phone's Sky Mail and NTT Docomo's Short Mail, both in Japan.Email messaging from phones, as popularized by NTT Docomo's i-mode and the RIM Black Berry, also typically uses standard mail protocols such as SMTP over TCP/IP.The text of the message was "Merry Christmas." The first commercially sold SMS service was offered to consumers, as a person-to-person text messaging service by Radiolinja (now part of Elisa) in Finland in 1993.Most early GSM mobile phone handsets did not support the ability to send SMS text messages, and Nokia was the only handset manufacturer whose total GSM phone line in 1993 supported user-sending of SMS text messages.
