    Average teen sends 3,339 texts per month - CNN.com

    I don't sent 3000 texts per year. :eek:


    EDIT: CNN needs to learn how to read graphs. Data is per quarter, but that is still a **** ton of texts!

    How the hell did I get to be 73 years old without a cell phone? I am surprised that I survived my teenage years without one. Who would these brats be sending all those important messages to? I can’t figure it out.

    Yes we know your old and grumpy. SO WHAT.

    If you would have had the cell phones 'BACK IN THE DAY' like we do now it would have been the same way.

    I don't text but I do IM at work and the conversations are similar.

    That's 3 messages each in about a 2 minute time frame. No one said they were important messages.

    Absolutely nothing, it just took me by surprise. I send less than 100 texts a month and I thought that was a lot.

    Back in Day any kid had better have a damned good reason to be using the phone. None of the kids I grew up with and ran around with would ever dare to call me on the phone just to talk. They would have gotten a whack and so would I.

    My kid probably falls in that bracket somewhere.
    FaceBook, friend-texting, and keeping in contact with me and her dad 24/7...it's really the only reason I let her have any freedom at all and don't keep her locked up in the house in this exponentially sickening pervy world.
    God bless text messaging.

    I managed to send 175 last bill, but most were responses to my nephews.

    I think some of the girls nowadays text like this one chick i dated talked on the phone; she would call me at home and chat about random nothingness while watching TV for 20 minutes. I know one of his buddies would get constant texts from his girlfriend if she wasn't present. I think the girls just want to "hang out" and keep a thumb on things when they can't be physically present. :rolleyes: The things a high school boy will do when chasing tail.

    Dude, you have no idea. I work for a cell company, and I see some MASSIVE texting bills. Parents refuse to get their kids a $20 unlimited plan because they think they can force their kids to talk on the phone instead of text, and they get nailed at 20 cents a text for 2k plus text messages! I've seen over 10 teens in the last year that averaged over 5 thousand texts a month, and a couple that went over 10 thousand in a month!!!

    On the bright side, it is cheaper to text nowadays then talk. On the not so bright side, most teens can't survive 5 seconds without sending a text message :(

    Walley, conversing in the written word makes it more difficult to convey subtle emotion. Tango may have been making a funny, perhaps chiding you a bit in fun.

    We are commenting about a thread where people send written messages to each other by way of a device that allows us to send written messages to each other.

    We are texting right now.

    It's called the evolution of society.
    In todays world, you carry on a conversation with all of your friends no matter were you are. I just don't text a lot because I am more old fashioned according to my buds. I only text when someone can't talk on the phone or when I need to ask a some what unimportant question like, "Dude, I don't know the name of this song. *names lyrics*. Any idea?"

    There is a down side to it. If you ever do anything stupid everyone knows about it seemingly instantly and there are usually videos involved so everyone can see it.

    As I said, it is simply the evolution of society.
    Just wait until everyone are using cell phones that have a video streaming. You will see the person you are talking to. Ever been somewhere and told everyone to hush so and so is calling? Yeah, not going to work anymore.
    "Where are you?" Answer: "I'm at Krogers, I'll be home in a bit."
    Asker: "Turn on your video." Answer: "No... (damnit)."
